USA – After Black Friday, what’s left of your savings is a click away from disappearing.  Yes, Cyber Monday is here and look around; chances are someone you know wasn’t very productive. Yeah, because Cyber Monday means about a billion and a half dollars’ worth of stuff we really may not need are getting gobbled up online.

Indeed, a survey by Dell says 63% of businesses expected a decrease in productivity today. Either the recession is a myth or this year’s turkeys were stuffed with gold.

Great expectations at Amazon.com and other online stores for this Cyber Monday.  Executives believe sales will increase 20% compared to last year.

So be careful at what you shop for; remember your boss knows where and when you’ve been surfing all day. Do you really want anyone knowing you bought “50 Shades of Gray” or a “Speedo”?
