We don't condone shopping when you should be working, but everybody needs a break, right? When you're out shopping for the online deals today, here are a few Cyber Monday specials we like:

Nabi, the Android tablet for kids, is the kids.woot special today, which means it also probably won't be there long. Regularly $199, you can score it today for $129. Amazon has a wealth of grown-up Android tablets with a few at pretty good prices.

Remember when we talked about how Tron is really an open source story? Amazon is offering Tron: Legacy with Tron: The Original Classic in a five-disc DVD/Blu-Ray combo for $48.49.

SparkFun is offering free shipping today. Pick up a new kit and get tinkering on your holiday lights display!

All Apress books are $15 today. Browse their open source section.

O'Reilly is offering 50% off all ebooks and videos or 60% off orders more than $100 with code CYBERDAY.

Adafruit is offering 50% off the early release version of Getting Started With Raspberry Pi.

If there's a maker, hacker, or tinkerer on your gift list, the recently released Makers: The New Industrial Revolution by former Wired magazine editor Chris Anderson is $13.98 on Amazon.
