Just 1 in 7 Black Friday deals are genuine discounts

Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Once just American retail traditions, they've now become truly global. But before you log on and take advantage of the discounts, here’s a stat for you to keep in mind: only 1 in 7 Black Friday deals offer a genuine discount!


Crazy! That finding came out of the UK from product review website Which.co.uk. It certainly got us talking and looking deeper into the world of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Today Darcy and Sascha ask - are the savings we find on Black Friday and Cyber Monday all that they’re cracked up to be? And are there any rules around advertising discounts and sales?

Why did Microsoft invest $10bn in ChatGPT?

Everyone is talking about Chat GPT. We did an episode about this revolutionary new step in Artificial Intelligence when it launched last year. What does GPT stand for? Generative Pretrained Transformer. And transforming is certainly what it is doing.The numbers don't lie - it crossed 1 million users within a week - when it took Instagram 2.5 months, Facebook 10 months, and Twitter nearly 24 months to reach those same user numbers. On 23rd January, Microsoft finally confirmed a new multi-year investment in Open AI, the company behind this revolutionary program - signalling that this wasn’t just a phase or a fad, but something that big tech sees as the next development for the future. Today Sascha and Darcy discuss - why has Microsoft invested in ChatGPT and what can we expect from AI in the future?The Community Survey helps us to understand who is engaging with Equity Mates Media, and more importantly, how we can continue to improve our content to help you on your money and investing journey.
