Electronic HOT-List 2011
What's making the electronic hot list this year? Tech guru, Scott Steinberg has the scoop on the latest and greatest gadgets, games, and sites you don't want to miss!
Scott: One of the coolest trends online right now are penny auctions...which is basically bargain shopping for really highly coveted things--for literally pennies. People are using it not only to get great deals on stuff...but also as a form of entertainment. Bidcactus.com for example is a new one...accredited by the Better Business Bureau, where you can get laptops, stuff for your home, gift cards, etc.How it works is users pre-purchase packs of "bids" in various amounts, which function as their pot when bidding. And when you place a bid -1 bid is taken from your account and the auction price increases by just one cent. You can also vote on what item you'd like to see get auctioned off next....so its cool and people are crazy for it. Businesses are moving online too.
