Pressing against the glass doors of a brick-and-mortar store amidst a feverish mass of humanity at the pre-crack-o’-dawn is for chumps and masochists.
The internet was invented for a reason people! (I mean, besides the porn and the lolcatz.) It’s there so that you can snag up all your Black Friday deals without having to put on any pants, leave your home, or interact with a single live person. In other words: as the Great Flying Spaghetti Monster intended it.
In that spirit, I present the latest in a series of annual installments collecting the best online Black Friday sales that especially appeal to us geeks. I’ll update throughout the day if I see anything new and noteworthy.
Now exercise some capitalism, you pantless wonders!
