Even more instant gratification is available from online stores that sell only digital products, and those sellers are also trying to cash in on the cyber shopping craze.
On Friday, Google's Play Store sent out an email promoting "Top Cyber Weekend Deals on Android Apps and More." Included: Movies from $4.99, top albums from $2.99, season passes for TV series for $9.99 and 50 percent off digital subsciptions to publications such as Newsweek.
Google was also pushing its 16 GB Nexus 7 tablet for just $199.
Another digital trend this holiday season is giving the gift of e-cards and e-reading. Although e-books don't necessarily make the best stocking stuffers, they are an increasingly popular choice for those who enjoy reading on their iPad, Kindle or Nook, or even on their smartphone. Amazon's Kindle reading apps , for example, enable readers to enjoy a book across multiple devices, reading on a PC or Mac, then switching to read on an iPhone or Android smartphone while on the road.

We were at the mall today and expected it to be swamped, but no. Busy yes, swamped... definitely not. The stores all had their sale signs out and were offering pretty good discounts... but for the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend... it was pretty darn quiet. I think Amazon.com is going to be the very big winner this holiday season! Although a lot of traditional brick-and-mortar retailers (Target, Macys, etc. as well as Apple) are also getting more heavily into online sales this year -- really more than I've ever seen before. I think Cyber Monday is definitely going to turn into a Mega-Cyber-Sales Month, maybe even continuing through to new years, if the e-tailers are willing.
