Shopping 'til fingers drop
Welcome to "Cyber Monday"
Last Friday, dubbed "Black Friday" by retailers, shoppers jockeyed for parking spaces and started near-riots in some stores - all in an effort to snag holiday shopping deals.
Today, "Cyber Monday," promises to be a quieter, gentler buyer's experience, as shoppers click their way through the information highway in search of similar bargains.
Amazon.com, with its fulfillment center pictured above, is just one of thousands of retailers ready for the deluge of customers. More than one in three people say they'll be using their fast-access work computers this year for holiday shopping. That's more than 51 million people logging on at work.
