Decide.com — What's the best time to buy electronics?

Screen Shot 2011-11-28 at 10.17.30 AM

I didn't think this site was a big deal — as it were — until Kevin Kelly emailed me back, "Now that is cool."

If Kevin Kelly says it's cool, well, that trumps whatever I'm thinking in a Podunk town minute.

I happened on Decide.com while reading an article in last Thursday's New York Times about Oren Etzioni, who founded the website.

Long story short: Black Friday is not the best day to buy high-end electronics.

It turns out that this week — "Cyber Monday week" — offers the lowest prices.

So why are you sittting there like a bump on a pickle reading this drivel?

Get thee to a Best Buy et al and score that long-coveted piece of kit.

Inflatable Wreath


More and more I'm thinking everything should be inflatable. 

Think of all the space that's freed up when you're not using stuff.

From the website:



We love the holiday season, but we're not crazy about pine needles all over the place.

Here's a cute holiday wreath sans pine needles.

When you're done for the year, just deflate it and store with the rest of your decorations.

21.5" x 18.5" x 6.5" inflated.
