Posted by on Nov 23, 2015


With the holiday shopping season upon us, everyone is once again scrambling for the best deals. Traditionally, Black Friday, the Friday after Thanksgiving Day, offers some of the best bargains for those who are willing to brave the lines and crowds. Thankfully, the internet now makes it possible not only to buy without leaving the house, but to scout out some Black Friday TV Sales ahead of time.

With televisions getting bigger and better all the time, there’s no better gift to make your loved ones smile this year. With that in mind, here is a sneak preview of a few of the best TV deals you’ll see on Black Friday this year (visit the stores online for a complete listing of features):

  • Sears, long an appliance leader, has a few good bargains in the works this year. The first is the Samsung 65” Class 4K UHD LED Smart HDTV (UN65JU6500) – The 4K models are really hot right now, and this one has it all for tech lovers. Unfortunately, there are no rain checks, and supplies are limited, so you’ll need to grab it early. The regular price is 2499.99, but it’s advertised at $1399.99, a whopping $1100 savings.
  • Another offering from Sears is the Samsung 48” Class 1080p LED Smart HDTV with built-in WiFi (UN48J5200) Here’s a solid, middle-of-the-road value for those who want something current without a hefty price tag. Quantities are limited. There are also no rain checks on this one. Regularly, this sells for $599.99, but it’s going on sale for $429.99, for a savings of $170.
  • A lower-end model from Sears for those looking to stretch the budget this holiday season is the Samsung 32” Class 1080p LED Smart HDTV with built-in WiFi (UN32J5205). Again, Sears says quantities are limited and they will not honor rain checks. The regular price on this model is $319.99, but it’ll be selling for $229.99, giving you a savings of $90.
  • Here’s one that you can get right now on Amazon: the TCL 40” 1080p Roku Smart LED TV. This is a brand-new model, for those who love to beat the neighbors to the punch. You can grab this model without waiting for $299.99, instead of the usual $419.99, a savings of $120. Also currently available are the 50” model, for $439.99 and the 28” model for $169.99.
  • Sam’s Club, famous for good deals in quantity, also has some steep savings in the works for Black Friday. The highest-end model on our list so far is the Samsung 75” Class 4K Ultra Smart HDTV (UN75JU641D). At a regular price of $3298.00, you save $900 by buying it at $2398.00.
  • A second, more affordable offering from Sam’s Club is the VIZIO 55” Class 1080p LED Smart HDTV – E55-C2. It sells regularly for $568.00, but will be on sale for Black Friday at $448.00, for a savings of $120.


Of course, other retailers also have a lot of deals going on, but if you’re going out to shop the old-fashioned way, rather than bargain hunting online, at least you’ll have a choice when you get where you’re going. For those stay-at-home couch potatoes looking for a wider selection, be sure you type the current year into your browser, or you could find yourself looking at deals from last year. Happy shopping!

But we can follow the news and think about future options in store. Here, we wish to share with you the news that will effect the future of internet.

Big Data from IBM
Word Cloud "Big Data"If you thought the time of supercomputers was in the past because new ones can fit on your desk, boy, were you wrong. And also – you probably never heard of IBM’s z13 mainframe computer. Big guys are back, with this week released giant that represents the future of computing and data processing. Guys from IBM say that z13 is able of processing 2.5 billion transactions every day, and this is bigger than you could imagine. Unless you are an expert in this field, then it’s exactly as you imagine, and yes – it’s a lot. This news is real big for everyone that knows the complex processing work done behind everyday communications that our lives rely on so much.
Rise of online sales
How-to-Improve-Online-SalesWith holiday season safe behind us, economy guys have crunched some numbers and results seem pretty interesting. Following famous Black Friday came the Cyber Monday, and it broke all the records. This year’s sales rose 17% compared to last years, which is huge. Really, very huge. And this information has even more impact after you find out that this rise was directly related to the drop in the classic, hand to hand, sales. This is one of the signs that future is coming and it’s digital. Internet is all around us, we’re on the social networks and web sites all the time. Even advertising went to internet. So, why not sales? More and more people are using the commodities of internet purchase, and even tho traditional shopping probably won’t ever die out, things are about to change big time.

Internet of Everything
Well, guys, it’s official: we are living in the future we were watching in sci-fi movies when we were kids. The idea of Internet of Everything has been around for quite some time: concept is that everything can be connected to internet – your fridge, your wash machine, your car or your dog? Everything can have an IP address and be accessible via internet. Do I have to tell you what does this mean? Probably not, because with a little use of imagination you can see some possible applications of this system. Just imagine, industry driven by idea that everything is programmable and accessible on the internet. And the thing that makes it serious is the fact that the idea is now starting to become a reality. Linux Foundation started gathering companies to help this project and make it a reality. And we all know just what Linux is and how awesome those guys are.
