Best of Black Friday

It's Black Friday today. And while we don't necessarily think you should spend the day waiting in line at the mall, it is the official start of the holiday shopping season, so you just might be able to pick up some bargains. To help you get started, we've partnered with Best Buy to pick some great gadgets for everyone on your gift list. (gdgt.com­/hub­/best­-buy/). These include some of our favorite products, like the Apple MacBook Air, Amazon Kindle Paperwhite, and Fitbit Aria scale.

What's on your list this holiday season? And, if you're out shopping today, what's it like out there?

I'm considering whether or not it's time for Nintendo 3DS XL, especially since the XL seems to have gotten the 3D aspect down better than the smaller 3DS. Other possibilities include a Kindle Paperwhite or Nook, and an alarm clock/dock that will fit my iPod Touch 4th Gen.

In non-gadget Black Friday Land, I've already made some small purchases via Amazon Lightning Deals; bought Batman: Arkham Asylum for $10 and a CD for my mom.

As I had to go into the office today, I did pass through Manhattan Mall at about 10am. It wasn't too crazy in there, but there were definitely more people in JC Penny than usual, as JC Penny is close to empty whenever I cut through the mall via that subway entrance.

PS Vita over 3DS! The price continues to come down and with PS+ you get a bunch of games top download for "free"

The one item I had on my holiday want list was the Sony RX-100 which I picked up for myself. There are other items I want but they're more of upgrades over what I currently have so they can wait another year.

There's nothing I really need, though there's plenty of stuff I want! Gift lists for other people include Kindle Paperwhite, Acer C7 Chromebook and Nexus 7. I feel like there's a lot of good gear out now at reasonable prices, which isn't always the case.

I'm probably going to need a larger memory card for the camera I bought a few weeks ago, and I'm definitely on the lookout for some good deals in games, though I don't know what just yet...
