"Incidents between November 24 -- December 7:

"Free offer takes down Dr. Pepper website: If you decide to offer everyone in America a free soda and make the offer last just one day, and direct everyone to your website, you’re asking for trouble. This is exactly what Dr. Pepper did. (This happened on November 23, but we included it here anyway because we thought it was really interesting.)

"Black Friday knocks out Sears.com: Though several online retailers had trouble with their websites, none had more trouble than Sears.com on Black Friday (Nov. 28), forcing the site to put up a maintenance page large parts of the day. StorefrontBacktalk has a nice summary of the incidents on Black Friday."
