This week, the #talkingtechLIVE gang will dive into tech deals being heavily advertised already for Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving, the busiest shopping day of the year. A new trend for 2015–Black Friday deals are starting as early as Monday.

Where do the #talkingtechLIVE panelists go to get great deals? What do they hope to buy this year as presents? What do they think will be the most lusted after gifts?

Our guests this week:
