    Do you? or Don't you? Not sure the point of the post?

    If "other" people are eyeing things up then - why haven't they purchased them already?

    You either need it or you don't. If you are eyeing things up you aren't sure and being seduced by a sales technique

    Apologies if you don't need anything. Though it applies to others too.

    I wasn't eyeing anything. Then my parents wanted to buy me a PS4 for Christmas, so I eyeballed that. Turns out the online deals are sold out, so they wanted to PayPal me $200 to go stand in line 2 hours early at Wal-Mart to buy a PS4 for myself at the discounted price of $199.

    I'm not eyeballing the PS4 anymore, and also finally got to back up my statement that you literally couldn't pay me to go to Wal-Mart on Black Friday. On a side note, I'm thankful today that my PS3 still works after 11 years.

    In a few hours I'll be eyeing YouTube for the latest Black Friday Brawls. That's my favorite part of the shopping holiday. :clench:

    Fair Question.... Not?
    WTF is Black Friday? I would suggest a marketing ploy to kick start more spending

    Dang consoles are cheap these days. For $200 you can get a decent graphics card for your computer, and hook up a controller. (Newegg is a good site)

    OR

    1. Get paid to go to walmart
    2. Film the crowd
    3. Upload to youtube
    4. Youtube money
    5. Buy regular priced ps4 and still have some left over

    1150591969.png Just moved into a new place recently and wanted to get a new TV for my living room (common area as I have employees here during weekdays) and a PS4 so we can do some team building exercises on break time :)

    Kohl's PS4 deal for $199 and $60 Kohl's cash is just a solid deal. Will be going to Best Buy for the TV (need smart TV so I can display my laptop screen wirelessly on it also for presentations).

    I live .25 miles from both so Im just gonna run through both at 5pm and try to get in and out. Will report back as I've never been dumb enough to deal with Black Friday madness before.

    Edit: 30 minutes and $500 later. Managed to hit both stores and be out the door before the madness started.

    New iPhone XR in 128gb or X i don't know, my 6S is dying and i had it since the launch, i don't buy anything normally but it's starting to piss me off when you go out with 100% and while doing nothing you now got 50% in 30 minutes (battery has been changed 5 months ago).

    So yes, new iPhone i guess.

    Not the way you worded it.

    Nothing wrong with snagging something on a discount.

    Now if you are going to kill each other in Walmart that's another story.

    We passed by a Walmart on the way to take the mother-in-law home. It did not seem near as bad as years past. I'd say 80% as bad a last year. I could be wrong but that's what it looked like driving by.

    • As an entrepreneur, I am using my phone constantly
    • E-mails, texts, phone calls..worth it to have a good phone
    • Bloatware and planned obsolescence is evil
    • Some say getting a used iPhone 8 is worth it too depending on your budget

    I had a Galaxy S5. I dropped it somewhere and it got rained on. Wouldn't work. The S5 took 10 mintues for it to charge 10% battery. I traded it in for an S9. The S9 takes 10 minutes to charge 1% battery. Thanks Obama!

    I just moved from my old 5S to a reconditioned 5SE. Hoping the battery life is better. I had to charge the old one twice a day it seemed, and that was getting pretty annoying.

    I’ll have to get me a standup desk one day. I’m sure my back will thank me. Which one are you looking at @Sanj Modha ?

    You can also get Jarvis legs and use your existing table top.

    OR Jarvis legs and an Ikea tabletop works well too

    Looking at a myriad of cellphones since my parents want to change their cellphone. Considering the market price and the fact that they want something that's not expensive, I don't want to buy them cheap crap (Hello Samsung A5).

    I will probably give them my OnePlus 5, which is more than they'll ever need, or get them a LG G7 One (Finally an LG withtout LG crap on it).

    I was looking at Koodo deals (Telus), and found a crazy method that makes it possible to save ~40%-50% on flagship phones prices.

    I just don't know how/where to write that and market that idea. It's so easy and yet I know some people that do it without any trouble, it's all legal and nothing shady too. I wonder what the company was thinking by implementing techniques like that. I might post that in the Speedway section.
