Tech Culture: See what deals shoppers were looking for at N.Y. Best Buy

1:39 /

Shoppers braved the cold and the early-morning darkness across the New York area to stand in line at electronic superstores like Best Buy. When it came to everything from digital cameras to plasma TVs, people were keen to find the best deals on all their holiday shopping.

^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:04 >> Black Friday every year kicks off the holiday selling season for us. It is the most important day of the year for Best Buy. The line is literally all around the block. I couldn't even tell you how many people that is. >> My friends brought me the Thanksgiving food and I just ate out here. >> People are broke like us so that's why we're here to get the deals. I'm getting a laptop hopefully and a hard drive for a friend and a digital camera. >> I'm getting a plasma for my boss; he gave me his card; but he's buying me a digital camera so that's okay. >> Lets get ready to run in. ^M00:00:38 [ Music ] ^M00:00:51 >> I wanted the smallest lap; it's only bio but it was sold out. It was a personal sellout. The third one I didn't fine but I've been looking for that for a while. ^M00:01:02 [ Music ] ^M00:01:09 >> Well I'm getting the Toshiba Laptop; I think it's 229 so I'm saving about 650 dollars. >> Really the Black Friday preparation actually starts tomorrow for next year. I mean literally every year we learn new things about Black Friday and we're taking those learning's and incorporating them into the next year's plan. So literally we start planning right away. ^M00:01:31 [ Music ] ^M00:01:38
