Changing Trend of Black Friday Shopping in the US and its Future

Category : How To

Over the years, Black Friday has always been considered one of the most important single shopping day in the US. However, the event usually continues for four days, starting with Thanksgiving Day and ending with Cyber Monday. Recent records about the sales pattern of US retailers show a gradual increase in spending since the recession. Records also show that people have become more inclined to online shopping on Black Friday since the last few years, the most significant being 2016, when more than half of the buyers purchased goods and commodities online.

This indicates that the shopping pattern of the users is fast changing and due to number advantages, people have become more inclined to online shopping. This however does not mean that offline retail stores have lost its significance. Spending at retail stores is still significantly higher than that online but it has to be taken into consideration that the ways people shop are changing and the offline retailers should understand this fact to improve sales in the future.

How Customers Find the Latest Deals These Days

Advertising circulars on news papers, posters on walls and hoardings are still the most significant mediums by which people find the latest deals. However due to the growing trend of people shopping online, it would be wise for the offline retailers to take their advertising campaign online to catch the eye of the customers more. Reports show that around 35% of consumers learned about the latest deals from direct email advertising campaigns, while 50% of the people found out about the latest deals through online searches and retailer websites.

Longer Sale Period Means Lower Sales per Day

Black Friday is known for its staggering sales, all thanks to the massive discount offers and other benefits to the consumers. But things have changed now since the last few years as the duration of the Black Friday sale offers have been extended. Also most of the online retailers provide value for money deals for nearly the entire year, leading to lower sales in offline stores during the Black Friday weekend. Also to avoid the long ques and waiting time on the streets, people have started to prefer online shopping more these days.

The Future of Black Friday Shopping in the US

Online sales will continue to grow in the future and it may start to rule the roost in the new few years. However, a unique shopping experience with great deals and offering spread over the entire year instead of just Black Friday will surely help the offline retailers to continue with their businesses.

Resident Evil 8 Wishlist: What The Fans Can Expect

Category : game

The survival horror series, Resident Evil, was initially created by Shinji Mikami and Tokuro Fujiwara. Developers Capcom has presented the game such that the gaming universe can go gaga with the launch of every new installment. Predictably, that’s what happened with every release. While retailing everything that is loved about the series, Capcom crafted a soft reboot by taking inspiration from those iconic horror cinemas as well as games. With the inclusion of the 1996 formula, RE 7 was greatly praised on numerous counts. That being said, where can the series go next? While the closure of Resident Evil 7 teased the return of Chris Redfield and The Umbrella Corporation via some DLCs, we expect Resident Evil 8 to debut home. Here’s the Resident Evil 8 Wishlist which one may expect.

Resident Evil 8 Wishlist: Few Essentials to Come with this Installment

While at this point it would be unnatural to blur out anything extraordinary about Resident Evil 8, there are few criteria which may complete the game with flying colors. Here’s what you need to check.

  • Resi Evil 7 relies on Ethan’s solitary narrative, a man who is stuck at inside a nightmarish mansion alongside some interesting inhabitants. With the developer’s clear words, we have received that the game will not have a multiplayer mode to give the impact of the best horrific player experience. The top most in our list of Resident Evil 8 wishlist are, therefore, to bring in the multiplayer mode with the game.
  • Virtual reality, one of the in-things, has specifically highlighted the gaming universe as well. Now that Resident Evil 7 is already hitting the gaming universe with the Virtual Reality support for PS4 owners, we could have something far smoother with the arrival of Resident Evil 8, concerning the advancement of VR tech.
  • Resident Evil 7 was undoubtedly a great edition as it was the homage to the early days of the franchise. There were notable elements, that being said, we have its title which had a direct impact to be the throwback of the original game. Overall, one may agree that Resident Evil is an excellent combination of nostalgia and a versatile storyline. We expect developers to bring back some nostalgic places from the 1996 title, say for Raccoon City?

Release date of Daredevil Season 3

Daredevil Season 3 Release: Why it is Being So Late?

One of the craziest shows of Marvel comics, Daredevil took our hearts away the moment it appeared in Netflix. Past two seasons were extraordinary and became a grand success. The time pattern it followed made it obvious the show will come back with the third season. But as per the record goes it should have the first season appeared on April 2015, and the second season came in March 2016. So the third season was more obvious to come back in that time zone as per the previous. But as we can see, it did not come at the time. Daredevil Season 3 Release is thus the most prominent discussion nowadays, and fans are waiting eagerly for the date to be announced officially.

Daredevil Season 3 seems not to happen until after The Defenders. So it will certainly be 2018 before we get them. If we go with the sequence of Netflix, then the next arrival is Defenders, which is due on August 18, and The Punisher is in post-production. We expect we will see that before the end of the year, too. Jessica Jones Season 2 is now filming in NYC which makes that the most likely candidate for the traditional March or early Spring, in Netflix. Luke Cage Season 2 will start filming in June. So there is hardly any possibility for Daredevil Season 3 this year.

Release date of Daredevil 3

Daredevil Season 3 release date

When Daredevil Season 3 is Coming?

If the news to be trusted, then Daredevil Season 3 may go on the floor in late October. This makes perfect sense. As it is right the time when The Defenders started off filming last year. With a late October start date, we can expect Daredevil Season 3 will arrive in Summer of 2018.

This time the plot will be more crucial, and Matt is going to have a much harder time in trying to keep his identity secret since he disappeared at the same time as Daredevil. Electra’s coming back can be a new twist for the plot, and the appearance of a new villain (Bullseye most probably) can add to the plot. After the “Kingpin” Fisk and the Punisher, Bullseye can be a real refreshment for the fans.

So there is no other way for the fans but to wait more than almost six months to get the third season and to look for the Daredevil Season 3 release date to be announced officially.

FIFA 18 Gameplay Trailer Shows New Crossing Abilities of the Players

Category : game

Football simulation games have ruled the world of video games for a long time. And it seems that the trend is not going to change much in the near future as well. And in that genre, a number of titles have been launched by different publishers, but very few have managed to match the popularity of the games in the FIFA franchise developed by EA Sports. The latest FIFA 18 gameplay trailer which has come out recently makes sure that things are going to get even better when the game comes out later on.

It has been quite a long time since FIFA 17 came out. Naturally, there have been a number of complaints which we have come across. The complaints have been mostly against the complicated corner system as well as the inability to float in appropriate centers from the wing. And expectations were there that the developers would bring in new features in the gameplay of FIFA 18(http://fifa18gamer.com) which will see that getting improved.

Now the latest gameplay trailer which has come out will certainly make the fans excited. This is because in the short video of forty-six seconds EA Sports has revealed that the gamers will be able to float in different types of crosses depending on the situation. The gamer can send in as many as five different types of crosses as the position of the player demands. One can send in a searching cross to the far post, while one can also send in a lobbing pass so that the target man can manage to arrive at the spot on time.

Often there have been occasions when you need to send in a powerful ball to the center from the flanks. But in the previous editions of the game, the gamers could not do that. However, if we go by the latest FIFA 18 gameplay trailer gamers will now be able to send in a cross with pace and power. Certainly, it is going to get really exciting for the gamers when FIFA 18 gets launched.

Wrap Up

There are not many days left to go before we can come across the game because September 29 is its official release date. But before that (it is a certainty), we will come across some more updates regarding the FIFA 18 gameplay trailer. In fact, not just the gameplay, it can be predicted that we will have updates on the other aspects of the game as well. So you need to keep your eyes on this section to get all the latest updates which come out regarding FIFA 18.

It features a Starpoint Positioning System and SecureFly magnetic interference protection system that enable the drone to provide high quality aerial photography

The drone comes with a 4K stabilized camera, a 7-inch powered by Android powered touchscreen and intuitive controls. The 8 smart flight modes and GPS navigation enable you to take high quality photographs and videos.

The advanced features include ActiveTrack tracking system, intuitive flight system and an amazing flight range technology. When fully charged, the DJI Phantom 4 Pro gives 28 minutes of flight time.

While its competitors fizzle out after 15 to 20 minutes of flight time, the DJI Mavic Pro lasts for as long as 30 minutes when fully charged.

Although flying these unmanned aerial vehicles are a lot of fun, we strongly advise you to not fly them at public places like parks as it is against the law. You should also not fly the drones close to the airport. To be safe, take the best camera drone to a place that is far away from people and fly as much you want!

Category : Apps

In this era of mobile phones and all the other premium devices, we cannot mull of living without those great gadgets today. And talking about cell phones, we actually get to do innumerable things with our Smartphones, and some of the activities actually help us in getting refreshed to a great extent. And one of those activities is playing several games on mobile phones which definitely are a great and awesome option of getting out of the boredom; it’s an addiction also.

But sometimes playing something on your respected mobile phone might be a little annoying and that only happens because of the irritating advertisements which keep popping or emerging. Suppose you are at an intense level where you are playing the game with utmost concentration, but it totally breaks when some ad suddenly and out of actually nowhere comes on the way. Your concentration is totally destroyed as you remain perplexed and try to get the ad away from the screen but at the end while tapping on the cross which is displayed on the advertisement, by mistake you actually end up tapping on the advertisement instead. So it redirects you to the ad, and then again you try it from the scratch to get back to your game.

You might even start playing it again, but the concentration which was applied earlier does not actually remain the same anymore. But people who already have the Freedom application of their Smartphones do not need to panic because of such woes at all. It has not been many years for the application which is named as Freedom to get developed, but within the span, it has gained acknowledgment and has got reviewed well by the users. It helps in discarding all the annoying and excess advertisements which emerge while someone plays something on the mobile phone.

Freedom app features

However, you all should be aware in in-app purchases also if you play games on your Smartphones. These generally mean that when someone heads to a certain level of a particular game or even trying to cross the level gets interrupted with a pop-up which would ask them to buy some coins which would help them to remain stable in the game. And if the character in the particular game is about to die as it runs out of a lot of energy, then also that pop up comes on one’s way and may ask to purchase the energy boosters. And for that, the player will obviously have to pay from their very own pocket which obviously half of the people won’t end up doing.

But the Freedom application will remove the need of in-app purchasing and is said to help those users to get those coins and energy boosters just for free. So, no money would be actually required to pay to buy the coins or energy boosters to reach the next level in the particular game.
