Know who else hates Cyber Monday? Target, whose site just went belly up (they had been offering 15% off pretty much everything in the store).

Seriously though, the name relates to the bygone era when folks didn’t have high speed connections at home and would wait until Monday to go into work to buy stuff on sale. Now, anyone with a smartphone can busy away anywhere/anytime and buy stuff on sale.

I heard that folks stayed out of the stores in droves on “Black Friday” they were too busy ordering stuff online.

The word/prefix “cyber” has no meaning in today’s world. CMIIW but wasn’t the word originally coined to mean creatures that were part organic and part machine? How does that even apply to the Internet and how we use it?
