Black Friday 2009 deals: Will Best Buy or online stores win?

On the night before Christmas, not a creature could possibly be stirring for a last-minute trip to the mall.
That’s because whatever holiday gift-giving spirit might seize you Dec. 24, you will have had since before Halloween to track down top deals, thanks to a race to the bottom from top retailers like Best Buy, Sears, and Wal-Mart. They’re not waiting until Thanksgiving weekend, the traditional “Black Friday,” to offer great deals on holiday merchandise. They’re doing it now.
Sears started the whole business by announcing that it was “Black Friday Now” on Oct. 28. Everyone from Wal-Mart to CVS to Ace Hardware has followed suit in some way or another, rolling out commercials and flashing the type of deep discounts normally reserved for those willing to camp out outside of major retailers on the morning after Thanksgiving.
The deep discounting may not be good for traditional retailers, it could be a bonanza for consumers, especially those who shop early, and online stores.
Because retailers are expecting comparatively weak overall demand during the holiday season, inventories of even hot sales items will be limited, according to a survey released by the National Retail Federation (NRF). In fact, with retail traffic dipping to a low unseen since 2003, stocks may be even more limited than previous shopping.
“In anticipation of weak demand, many retailers scaled back on inventory levels to prevent unplanned markdowns at the end of the season,” says NRF President and CEO Tracy Mullin in a press release. “Once the most popular items are gone, retailers won’t have anywhere to get them, so if there was ever a holiday season to buy early, this is it.”
As companies dive into cut-throat price wars, such as the current battle over DVD prices, consumers will get more bang for their buck — and lower prices on goods — not only on holiday goods but also on everyday merchandise, as corporations look to lure in customers for the entirety of their holiday shopping.
By taking the emphasis off of crashing through store doors and concentrating instead on a longer selling window, online sales and online vendors are looking to see gains. Over half of online retailers, according to a separate NRF survey, expect sales to grow at least 15 percent.
The downside? Retailers’ bottom lines probably aren’t going to get too much healthier. The NRF forecasts a decline of 1 percent in total holiday sales, well below the 10-year average growth of 3.39 percent but far better than last year’s drop of 3.4 percent.

Thunder Collins: Thunder Collins Behind Bars

Thunder Collins is making headlines. Thunder Collins was sentenced today. Thunder Collins is a former Nebraska Cornhuskers running back, and Thunder Collins was convicted of attempted murder.
According to ESPN, Thunder Collins was convicted of first-degree murder back in August of this year. In addition to first degree murder, Collins was also convicted of attempted second degree murder, weapons charges, and felony assault.  The first degree murder charge means a mandatory life sentence for Thunder Collins.  The other charges could have gotten him another 130 years.
Thunder Collins was sentenced today.  He was sentenced to life in prison.  Thunder Collins maintains his innocence and has a “never say die” attitude, saying he’d see the judge upon appeal.
He also told the judge that he wanted to be buried upside down so that his critics could kiss his A**.  He also maintains his innocence and thinks that he was convicted only because he was a “prominent” figure in the community.
Thunder Collins was the mastermind behind a planned drug deal in which Collins would rob the men.  One man was killed and another was left for dead.
Thunder Collins is no stranger to trouble with the law. He has pleaded guilty of disturbing the peace charges and has been acquitted of assault and burglary charges in a 2003 incident involving a domestic disturbance.

Carrie Prejean sextape video watch

Searching for the Carrie Prejean sextape video download? Thinking that there might be somewhere that has the Carrie Prejean sextape download?
Wanting to watch the Carrie Prejean sextape video?
You really might want to think again here. For there will be no legitimate site that offers the Carrie Prejean sextape video to watch or download. Not a one.
Everyone offering the Carrie Prejean sextape video for you to watch or download will be a malware site. They'll say they have it, ask you do download a video driver of player, and then infect your machine.
Absolutely no one will be offering the real Carrie Prejeab sextape video fo your to watch or download. For, you see, she was 17 when it was made. That means that the Carrie Prejean sex tape is child pornography.
You've got to be 18 to exercise your constitutionally protetcted rights to free speech by stripping off and having sex of any kind on camera. If you're a day below that age then it isn't free speech, it's child pornography. And those who sell it, those who distribute it and even, in certain places, those who watch it inadvertently can go to jail.
It just ain't gonna happen folks, there just won't be a version of the tape on the net. Read More..
