Yup, Black Friday 2009 is in three days, and the Black Friday sale leaks are happening fast and furiously at this point. The latest ad that we have for you gives you a look at everything that Amazon will have available at a nice discount for their Black Friday sale. Since Amazon sells pretty much everything under the sun, we’ve pared the offerings down to cover just the things we’re interested in, no clothing deals here, but we’ve got all the tech and gadgets that’ll be on sale at Amazon come Black Friday for you, after the break. Be sure and take notice of all the Blu-ray disc sales, which should go nicely with the $78 Blu-ray player in the Walmart Black Friday 2009 ad!
We’ve gotta say, Toys R Us gets big props from us for how they are handling their Black Friday 2009 sale. Rather than making you wait out in the cold until four or five in the morning, they are opening up at midnight, and they’ve got a bunch of doorbusters to make you head straight on over after your Thanksgiving get-together. We are talking about tremendous deals on video games, toys, and even a few gadgets and Blu-ray titles. We’ve got the list for you after the jump.
Looks like our friends over at MacMall have got themselves a killer pre-Black Friday sale going on right now, where you can get pretty much every Mac at a discount, as well as a free copy of Parallels Desktop 5.0 (the best Windows virtualization tool for the Mac) and a free HP All-in-One printer. Not bad, right? Here are a few examples of what you can find:
- Unibody MacBook: $934.99 ($64 off)
- 13” MacBook Pro: $1,099 ($99 off)
- MacBook Air: $1,349 ($449 off)
- 21.5” iMac: $1,119 ($80 off)
- 2.66GHz Mac Pro Tower: $2,298 ($200 off)
That’s just a sampling, and remember, those all come with a free copy of Parallels 5.0 and that HP All-in-One printer - we aren’t sure you’ll find a better deal anywhere else this holiday season, even on the official Black Friday 2009. Seriously, a MacBook Air for 25% off?
Best Buy’s Black Friday 2009 ad has leaked, and it is chock-full of goodness, in our humble opinion. If you are a gamer, you’ll definitely want to take a look at some of the deals they’ve got on a bunch of titles, as well as console bundles. HDTVs are also drastically reduced in price, and they’ve even got a Blu-ray player for $99. Good times all around.
Alright, we are scrounging together all of the Black Friday 2009 ads and deals that we can find, and bringing them to you one-by-one in order to help you make your shopping decisions, and we are starting with Office Depot, which actually has a few surprising items that are fairly attractive, if you ask us. Go ahead and check out the list after the break. Also check out our Newegg posts, for items you can buy from the warmth of your chair, as opposed to lining up outside in the cold. Hey, to each their own.

It costs a bunch of money to make a movie and nearly as much to actually go see one in the theaters. Top Shelf has hit a fall jackpot with their comic book The Surrogates, written by Robert Venditti and drawn by Brett Weldele. It’s debuting as a movie on September 25th, directed by Jonathan Mostow, written by John Brancato and Michael Ferris and starring Bruce Willis and Rosamund Pike.
To celebrate the movie’s release (check out the trailer after the jump!), Top Shelf is debuting The Surrogates comics at iTunes, so you can read the original graphic novel on your iPod Touch or iPhone. You can get the first two issues for 99¢ and the remaining three issues for 99¢ each. If that seems like too big a risk for you, then you can just download the entire first issue—that’s The Surrogates #1—for free from the iTunes App Store. Got it?
Between now and September 25th, Top Shelf will be taking advantage of the slow fall comic book season and offering up a whopper of a sale to celebrate: lots of great graphic novels and comic booky stuff for $3 a pop and reduced prices for their prime Alan Moore books like The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Lost Girls, and From Hell. Also, Halloween is coming up, and what better gift than a copy of Johnny Boo by James Kochalka?
It’s a great time to be alive.

Dell claims that their Outlet sales have made at least $3 million in revenue since they began subscribing to Twitter in 2007. They say that they have made money both from new sales and refurbished products. Undoubtedly much of the 650,000 following is attributed to Twitter-exclusive offers, Dell Outlet deals and Outlet-specific updates because before that time, they only had a mere 11,000 subscribers.

RIM has taken the top spot with its BlackBerry as the most popular smartphone in the first quarter of 2009. Their market share jumped 15%, giving it 50% of the market, while Apple and Palm each lost 10%. A study by NPD claims that aggressive promotions such as the “buy-one-get-one” Curve deal contributed to the popularity. The Storm came in third while the Pearl came in fourth. The G1 took the 5th spot. We expect that this may be a temporary position, as Apple will undoubtedly fight back.
[Editor: Oh, and of course, Apple didn’t do any sort of “buy one, get one” with the iPhone, which is certainly helping pad those BlackBerry numbers.]
