Cyber Monday’s best tech bets

So you’ve had a nice, calming two-day respite from all of the bargain hunting. But don’t worry, it’s almost over. It’s Cyber Monday, a holiday made up in 2005 because Black Friday wasn’t quite doing the trick. Sure it’s a crass cash-in and yet more grist for the end of year Capitalist mill — but the deals!

Over the past few years, Cyber Monday’s become as much of an online madhouse as Black Friday. There’s a lot to crawl through, and still plenty of leftover deals from before the weekend, but now’s a great time to pick a good gadget for yourself, or as a gift, I guess.

The good news is, Facebook, Apple and Google paved the way for fertility perks a couple of years ago in an effort to entice more women to work for them.

Now several tech companies have followed with some pretty good IVF and other benefits to help you out. Here are the top 10 tech companies and the fertility benefits they offer.
