Many years ago, a bald eagle with aviator shades flew over the UK, clutching an American flag in one majestic talon, and a scroll outlining the idea for an event called Cyber Monday in the other.
OK, so that's probably not entirely accurate, but Cyber Monday, like Black Friday, is very much real, and the world has inherited both days from our friends across the pond.
Prepare yourselves for another round of tech bargains, and keep checking back to see what tasty new deals we've added to the pile.
The Best Cyber Monday Deals so far
Fancy getting £100 off the excellent Moto X? Of course you do. It's Stuff's number one smartphone, after all. Hit up Moto's site, register from 8am on Monday 1 December, and use the resulting code to save a decent chunk of cash.
If you're after a cheap pay as you go phone then EE's presences at the Black Friday party should pique your interest:
* At least 20% off all pay as you go smartphones worth £150 or less, including handsets such as the the Huawei Ascend Y550, which will be just £56 - the cheapest 4G smartphone available from the network.
* 20% off all pay as you go 4GEE Mobile WiFi devices, including the white EE Osprey for £40.
* 20% off all accessories available on the EE online shop
As usual, the retail giant has a whole host of limited-time Lightning deals. Keep an eye out for when they finish, because once they're over, the discounts are gone. The Kindle Fire HDX 7 deal lasts all day - the others go live at the times listed below and will be taken down once the stock is exhausted. So you might have to move quickly. We'll be updating Amazon's deals throughout the day, but here are a few early tech deals to start things off:
Kindle Fire HDX 7in - £150 (£50 off)
SanDisk memory - 30% off selection
Sennheiser HD 202 On-Ear Headphones - £16 (£21 off)

HOT UK DEALS

Mobile Fun has a selection of deals to enhance your pocketable best friend. The excellent LG G Watch R is currently down to £200 from £220, price-matching its Moto 360 rival. It impressed us in our review, thanks to its truly circular screen, one and a half day battery life and snappy performance, so well worth considering. Then again, you might prefer the Pebble Steel, which is £50 cheaper and offers substantially longer battery life, thanks to an E Ink display.
