For technology and gadget lovers, there were two main Black Friday sales at Best Buy this season – a 50″ Panasonic LED TV for $199.00 (regularly $549.99) and an iPad Air 2 for $100 off. Since I wasn’t looking for a new TV, I started focusing on a new iPad. Originally, I wasn’t a fan of the iPad. I didn’t see the purpose of it.

ArenaNet continues their tradition of celebrating the holidays in Guild Wars. Since this weekend is Thanksgiving, computer controlled monsters will drop Pumpkin Pie and Hard Apple Cider. Even in the virtual world of Tyria, there will be lots of eating and drinking this weekend. I enjoy these events because it’s great for title farming. If you’re working on your Sweet Tooth or Drunkard title, the extra loot helps. Supposedly, this digital gluttony will be rewarded in the sequel.
