Tech Bytes: Zoom's Thanksgiving gift

Created: November 16, 2020 10:19 AM

In today's Tech Bytes-- Zoom's Thanksgiving gift. It's lifting the 40 minute limit on free video chats on Thanksgiving and into the early morning of black Friday. The offer is meant to give families who aren't traveling more time to talk.   

Black friday is getting off to an early start this year with many retailers stretching their sales over several weeks. Macy's rolls out its deals today including cashmere sweaters for more than 70% off. Best Buy also rolling out deals today where members can get a Roomba vacuum for about $300.

Costco is giving members a chance to fly away. The wholesaler is now offering 12- month subscriptions to the private jet service Wheels Up. They go for $17,500. The price includes the right to book flights - but not the cost of the flights themselves.
