Digital pure plays and mobile shopping shined on Cyber Monday, but overall the day lost some steam versus a year ago as merchants focused on the five-day period from Thanksgiving through Monday.
Adobe Digital reported Tuesday that online shopping for Cyber Monday set a new record — hitting $2.29 billion, a 16 percent year-over-year increase from 2012, with 18.3 percent of sales, or $419 million, coming from mobile. Pure-play e-tailers came out on top, taking a 42 percent share of all online sales for the day. Retailers overall raked in an estimated 10 percent of their holiday sales during the five-day stretch, with total e-commerce sales of $7.4 billion — up 26 percent year over year.

"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.
