Black Friday isn't just for Friday anymore; Amazon.com is stretching their deals to last this entire week. Their Black Friday page already launched, with an attempt to generate buying fervor by including limited-time sale items, complete with countdown clocks.
Right now, for instance, Twilight DVDs are up to 74% off and The Complete First Season of Gossip Girl is only $13.99, for a little over the next hour at least. But of course there's still the usual Black Friday items available all week; HDTVs, GPS units, world atlases and men's watches we can always count on. So much for Cyber Monday. [Amazon]
