While most retailers lost money this holiday season, Amazon is pleased to announce that they did just fine, thank you very much. Their best sellers included the Wii, the iPod touch and Samsung’s 52-inch LCD HDTV. They claim an increase of 17% (6.3 million items) on their busiest day, Dec.15.

They are not only offering low prices on their own products, but on other companies’ products as well, although we found the prices of those about equal to those on Amazon.
