What about camera deals? any idea on those?

FrankKerner 10-14-2012 05:26 PM

3D Blu-Rays and 3D TVs will come down BELOW the cost of regular HD televisions.

I predict this because of several production studios / television makers wanting 3D to take off. Passive 3D 47" TVs will be around $500, maybe $450. 3D Blu-Rays will be $19.99 for most.

This years BF seems not too exciting...

Prices will be about the same as they were last year on electronics, except for tablets. Those will fall. Stores will offer credits when you buy from them (ie Walmart will offer $50 GC if you buy the new Wii U from them; Staples will probably kick in $25 GC for the Nexus 7 tablet. Ultra books should be hot this year, clearing out old stock. Probably a good selection of Ultra books under $500. XBOX 360 and PS3 systems will be very low, competing for market share against the Wii U. The Wii U sill start at $299, and be the big ticket item this year.

Sears, Best Buy and Walmart will have their best Black Friday ad to date. Amazon, New Egg, Toys R Us, and ebay will definitely be worth shopping all day on Thanksgiving, and up through the night. I give myself a limit of $1000 or so just for online shopping. I'm always too tired to hit the stores on BF. Wife can pick up the leftover stuff at 3am that I may have missed online.

Obama will lose the election. Stock market crashes and everyone will panic due to the end of the world prediction which will occur on Dec 21, 2012.

People will start throwing out all of their electronics on the streets because they no longer function due to the massive solar flares interference. All of the smart phones now become doorsteps.

Everyone DIES. The end.

I'm sorry if I spoiled any of your plan (and many other SDers). But the scenario I mentioned could happen. So my point is use BF as an opportunity to spend quality time with your loved ones. You never know if you will have that chance again if the above scenario that I mentioned does happen.

Can you leave me all of your money and worldly possessions now to avoid the rush? I will guarantee your spot in Heaven.

Trust me you didn't spoil my plan, I took a liking to the vision of the future you presented us with.

Prediction $199 42" SHARP 1080P HDTV at Best Buy again.

I remember the fiasco here on the forums about it. At some point it went on sale On-Line and it should have not done so. Some lucky people like me placed orders, and were canceled. Best Buy agreed to give us a Comprable model and I ended up with a 42" LED 120hz 1080p LG HDTV. Got a $1,000 TV for $199.99

In high sight I should have got 2.

But PLENTY of entertainment for the rest of us who just buy junk online and avoid the BS.

I wonder what the cheapest point and shoot camera will be? Just need something for occasional photos to put stuff on Craigslist/eBay. Also in for some resale stuff if it catches my attention.

Your phone. Seriously. Download the eBay mobile app and you're ready to go. Why buy another gadget?
