NEW YORK — E-commerce players can forget those worries about a weak holiday season — they’re still in growth mode.
Forrester Research predicted Monday that U.S. online sales this holiday season would reach almost $78 billion, a 15 percent increase from last year. Not bad, considering overall holiday sales are slated to rise 2.4 percent to 4.5 percent amid weak consumer confidence, economic and governmental concerns and the shortest holiday season in more than a decade.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
