Forget "Cyber Monday," many of the big online merchants selling technology gear are knee-deep into Black Friday as well. Online heavyweights such as Apple (AAPL), Amazon.com (AMZN), Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) and Dell (DELL) are all laden with Black Friday notices and special deals. Ironically though, it's retailer Target (TGT) that's making the huge push toward Cyber Monday. This way, they get you in the store Friday and over the weekend, and then buying more stuff online when you are back at work Monday - truly a monument to consumerism.
