This holiday season millions of shoppers are turning to their mobile devices to make purchases. Top merchants are expected to make over $5 billion in mobile sales as more shoppers compare and buy products on the go. Retailers are embracing in-store price checks and are driving online shoppers to brick-and-mortar locations. In other news, Netflix is reviving the cult-classic sitcom Arrested Development, playing new episodes in early 2013. After striking a deal with Twentieth Century Fox, Netflix will make the new episodes available exclusively for streaming video subscribers. And finally, if you recently bought a new iPhone, but didn’t purchase AppleCare+, it’s not too late. Apple just changed its policy allowing customers to add AppleCare+ service up to thirty days after purchasing a phone. The only catch is that your phone can’t be damaged within that period
