Cyber Monday Scores a Touchdown

Rather like our hometown New England Patriots, holiday consumers dropped back and lofted a digital pass into the end zone for a big score. Early reports indicate that Cyber Monday was on track to set a record for online purchases.

Cyber Monday is so named because of its reputation as the biggest online shopping day of the year. In the days before widespread broadband access, workers would come back from the Thanksgiving holiday and use their employers' fast Internet access to begin online shopping for the holidays.
