Is Cyber Monday Still Relevant?
Dec. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Like Black Friday, Cyber Monday is largely a marketing ploy. It first popped up in 2004.

Today, Cyber Monday has evolved into a marketing campaign urging people to shop all day and all week long, from anywhere using their mobile device. So has cyber Monday become irrelevant? Bloomberg Businessweek’s Kyle Stock finds out.
