Experian released 2012 online traffic data for Thanksgiving e-commerce compared to the prior year. Across teh board, Thanksgiving day traffic was +71% – an astounding increase. And it was 46% greater on Thanksgiving day versus the prior day (Wednesday).
After using the iPad Mini for 48 hours now, I wanted to get some quick thoughts down that answer the most common questions I have heard:

Here is Amazon’s homepage – aggressively positioning the Kindle Fire HD against the forthcoming iPad Mini. It compares pixels, speakers, and video quality… but what will really matter to consumers: the price. (Of course Apple would position the two alongside iTunes and form factor).
