Thinkware F750 Dash CameraHave you been in your car and wanted to take a video of something before it happened, or without you being there? I’m hoping by now you are curious and asking yourself, “How do you capture video without being there, or record before an event happens?” Simply put, get yourself a dash camera to capture moments that occur when you are not around and for times when seconds matter making a picture impossible to take.


An Echo and a Tap

Amazon Echo.jpgHow many times a day do you pull out your phone to search the web for information you need, or to change the song you’re listening to on Spotify? There is so much we use the internet for now it’s become a necessity, and it’s really how we connect to the web that matters. The Amazon Echo is one way to connect to the internet, and I have to say it is one of the best ways.  It not only changed how we connect to the internet, but also changed how we interact with our own homes.

The Best New Cameras

by Senior Social Media Specialist Senior Social Media Specialist ‎04-03-2016 12:00 AM - edited ‎04-05-2016 11:53 AM

I remember purchasing my first SLR and how much I loved all the bells and whistles it had. Growing up I have always loved tech, and collecting new equipment. I guess collecting is part of photography, and in a way capturing a moment in time is collecting that moment. I know I picked a very expensive thing to collect. Because of this one of my favorite times ofD5.JPG the year are when the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and when Camera & Photo Imaging Show (CP+) are happening. I love seeing all the great new gear, and this year shows did not disappoint.

The Year of VR

Gear VR Small.pngMany things have been said in the numerous Tech Blogs about this year’s recent Consumer Electronics Show.  But among all the headlines, the phrase “The Year of VR” has caught my eye the most. For years, consumer Virtual Reality has just been a curiosity with the faint promise of being available for the masses one day soon. With the recent opening of pre-orders for what is considered the genesis of this movement, the Oculus Rift, as well as the strong showing of competing VR hardware at CES like the HTC Vive, maybe this is the year computing changes again.

Weatherman's DayToday is the day we honor those special forecasters who help us prepare for the adverse conditions that precipitate living in an atmosphere such as ours. In other words- we thank the guy who says it’s gonna rain. If it weren’t for the weather people out there, many of us would be in rough shape when big storms come along- like the huge blizzard that hit the east coast. So to help you get ready for when the forecast calls for another big one, Best Buy has a few items that might come in handy.

coldI don’t know about you, but I have had a great time this holiday. Be it Christmas with my family or New Years with my friends, I feel grateful for the time I have had with all the people in my life. Speaking of being grateful for the time I’ve spent with people, I am grateful for the time I have spent as the editor of the Latest & Greatest blog. Unfortunately, this is going to be my last post as the man in charge- Moderator Allan-BBY will be taking the reins from here on out. To commemorate this changing of the guard, I thought I would share a few of my favorite blogs that I’ve published over the last year. Enjoy!

Happy Friday the 13th!

Friday the 13th

Halloween may be over, but that’s no reason to ignore a day like this. Celebrate Friday the 13th with Best Buy by checking out some of the relevant products we have to offer!


Fallout 4 Gold Bundle

Unlike the inhabitants of the Fallout universe, there is still time to avert disaster. Preorders are still available for the Gold Bundle of Fallout 4 on! With this deal, you not only get the fantastic latest chapter of Fallout, but it comes with the season pass and exclusive pair of Vault Boy socks!

Click here to learn more about which stores are taking part in late night opening!




Halloween is nearly upon us and all the little ghouls and goblins – and the big ones too – are making plans for costume parties and Trick-or-Treating. It’s a festive time of year to be sure. The trees are bedecked in the blazing colors of autumn or bare as a skeleton’s bones, scraping the turbulent sky with their gnarly fingers. It’s a time of year that fires the imagination and captures the essence of our nightmares and fears, all in a single chilling night.


The ShiningIt’s October, which for me means an obsession with anything and everything Halloween related. Horror movies, costumes, haunted houses - all sorts of spooky things! Recently, I made a visit to The Stanley Hotel. Yes, the hotel that inspired Stephen King’s The Shining. As an avid Stephen King fan, I was extremely excited but quite unprepared as I only had my smartphone on hand to do any ghost hunting (which only led to some pretty terrible photos). I can think of several devices that would have come in handy while I was there, as they do encourage and welcome ghost hunting.

Cool ideas for cooling your computer

Avengers: Age of UltronWith all the super hero blockbusters coming out these days, I think it’s safe to say that the love of comic books has gone mainstream. While it may not be the actual comics that people are celebrating, their influence on our culture is hard to ignore. It has gotten to the point where people who have never even read a comic book are celebrating the newest releases. Well it's only days away from the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron- so why don’t you celebrate Comic Book Day with a preorder at Best Buy!



Happy Hobbit Day! (September 22nd)

The HobbitSeptember 22nd is the Birthday of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins, two Hobbits from Hobbiton in the Shire. Both of these “Halflings” set out on great adventures through the lands of Middle Earth as they fought the forces of evil- saving the world in the process. After a multitude of books, comics, games, and movies, both of these characters have earned a place in the hearts of millions of fans worldwide. For this special day, I thought I would tell my history with Bilbo, Frodo, and their creator- J.R.R. Tolkien.



Pre-Order Pitch Perfect 2

by Social Media Specialist Social Media Specialist on ‎09-18-2015 11:15 AM

Pitch Perfect 2Every Thanksgiving after we’ve gorged our faces with delicious food, my family likes to go see the latest blockbuster hit. I wasn’t all that thrilled at first, because when we started this recent tradition, we decided to go see Pitch Perfect. To be honest, I thought it looked a little gimmicky and I didn’t want to see it, but since spending time with my family outweighed this concern, I went along with it. To my surprise, I fell in love with the acapella world and the witty, quirky humor of the Barden Bellas (Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson). You can imagine then when Pitch Perfect 2 was announced, I was ecstatic!



New ReleasesNew Release Tuesday is upon us, and it does not fail to deliver this week. Pick up Destiny: The Taken King, Forza Motorsports 6, and NHL 16 before it’s too late!

All seasons are currently on sale on! 


EOS Rebel T5 DSLRTaking a family photo was always an adventure for us. It began by rushing around trying to find everybody and gather them together in one room. The next step was finding an area that everybody could fit in and not look too crammed, perhaps the big couch or in front of the big tree in the front yard if the weather was nice. Once everyone was gathered, the real chore began. We would stand still as my father hunched over the camera set up a few feet away. Every few seconds he would spin a knob or flip a lever with the look of a mad scientist, calculating all the factors to get perfect exposure. After what seemed like an eternity he would push a button and sprint towards us. If we were lucky enough for him to make it back to his spot before the camera picked up his movement, we would only have to repeat the process 4 or 5 more times. If not, the agony of the family photo would continue until we got it right.

Vacation Week - Going to the Cabin

by Social Media Specialist Social Media Specialist ‎07-24-2015 10:24 AM - edited ‎07-24-2015 10:25 AM

 Cooler.jpgI haven’t been out to the family cabin this year, but I have some fond memories of going out on the lake and grilling with the family. I remember one year where we ended up having so much fun that we made the decision to stay outside all night around the campfire and tell those stereotypical ghost stories. My sister was absolutely terrified the entire night, but it was so much fun just being out with friends and family without the pressures of real life getting in the way.


Vacation Week- Gadgets for Flying

by Social Media Specialist Social Media Specialist on ‎07-22-2015 07:00 AM

iPad Air

I’ve always loved to travel. I think it’s because when I was a little girl my parents would pack us up in what I now call the “truckster” and we would embark a on a 3 day road trip to Mexico to see my family. I didn’t mind the long hours because I always had my Sony Walkman with me to listen to my favorite tunes, and a good book. Nowadays I’m not as patient sitting for so many hours, so I enjoy flying a lot more.  I’ve been on short flights, for example to Chicago, and long ones like Sweden and Argentina. While short flights are over before you can even finish the drink you are given, I dread the long 15+ hour flights; therefore, I always make sure to take some gadgets along with me to keep me busy. Here are my favorites.


Vacation Week- Road Trip Gadgets

Pioneer SPH-DA120

Road trips can be some of the greatest times of your life! With more sights to see across the country than one may be able to fit into a lifetime, it’s amazing to take the opportunities when you can. When sitting in a car for several hours, it’s always best to make sure you’ve got the best gear to keep you safe and enjoying the ride!


What you need to work remotely

You probably have a friend, family member, or coworker that has been given the opportunity to work remotely from home full-time with their company. With today’s technology, it’s becoming increasingly more possible for companies to provide such an opportunity. Of course, there are some things that are needed to work remotely as an integrated part of the company, and a few others that would make your tasks far easier.


Ant Man

Marvel must have been cooking up something good in the kitchen- because now we have ants. Ant Man is coming to theaters Friday July 17th, but Best Buy is once again here to provide an exclusive peek at the upcoming blockbuster at our Samsung Entertainment Experience Shops. Visit one of our participating locations Now until July 18th to see content from the movie in stunningly high quality on the Samsung UHD TV’s.

Do you have opinions about Minions? What about lame rhyming? Either way, you should come by Best Buy to one of the Samsung Experience shops to see the Minions trailer in exclusive 4K Ultra HD. The first 50 people to view the clip and complete a demo should be eligible to receive a Minion squeeze ball!

Come check out some of our picks for appliances that should make your outdoor get together that much more memorable.



Cuisinart - Waffle MakerWaffles have been a breakfast favorite for me since I was a child. Apparently they are not just my favorite as waffles are eaten throughout the world, particularly in Belgium, France, Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Hungary, Scandinavia, United States, with over a dozen regional varieties in Belgium alone. I was also surprised to discover that they have been around since the 14th century! People used waffle irons to cook them, and the waffle iron plates were made in different shapes/designs . Nowadays you can find waffle makers everywhere, and they still come in many sizes and shapes. Let’s explore the different waffle makers we offer!

Samsung 4K

It may come as some surprise to the younger generations, but the world was once in black and white. Well, not literally- but for those who owned the first models of TV it was. Some have argued that the color TV was the biggest advancement in home entertainment since the TV was first introduced, but there have been much bigger advancements over the years.



Batman: Arkham KnightIt’s almost here, Batman: Arkham Knight is available Tuesday, June 23rd! For those who cannot wait, select Best Buy locations will have a midnight release across the country. Due to demand, Best Buy will have a tiered release for each time zone. Click here to read more.



Quad-CopterAbout this time every year, I always struggle to find something for my dad on Father’s Day. If you’re like me, there are always the good old standbys of grilling toys, hardware tools, or even TV series boxsets. This Father’s Day I’m determined to find something for my dad that doesn’t scream, “I didn’t know what to get you!”. Of course, this is easier said than done, as my dad is a little harder to shop for than most, so I really have to think outside of the box to find something he’ll like.



5824065cv11d.jpgEach year Father’s Day rolls around, and you’re debating between new socks or a new tie. If your budget is a little more significant, you may be considering a new grill or perhaps a new home theater device. But what if your dad is just a little sportier and not so much of a movie buff?  You can help him improve his game with the Zepp Smart Sports Equipment!

Cole HaanAs is customary for Minnesota, spring did not arrive until later in the season, and May has brought more showers than April, so it looks like June will bring the flowers this year. Besides looking forward to spring and summer weather, I look forward to the new colors introduced for the seasons. Designers did not disappoint this year, and I absolutely love the mix of understated brights, pale pastels and nature-like neutrals that you see in clothing and accessories. They chose colors like aquamarine, scuba blue, toasted almond, strawberry ice, and marsala to name a few. These tones invoke thoughts of oceans, sand, and nature. They give us that little escape from our busy schedules and help soothe our senses.

Planet EarthI always think of Earth Day (April 22) as the Earth’s birthday. I think happy thoughts, eat cake, sing songs, and generally thank my friend the Earth for all of the good things she’s done for me all year long. She’s a generous soul, our Earth, what with having air to breathe and water to drink and an amazing variety of living things – from ants to zebras, from anemones to zinnias – to cultivate, admire, and with whom human beings can partner to make our friend and Mother, the Earth, an even better place in which to hang out, live life, and share with our children.


What’s in an SD Card?

by Administrator Administrator ‎04-16-2015 10:23 AM - edited ‎04-22-2015 04:39 PM

SD CardOne of the most frustrating things you can come across when shopping for something is a grouping of strange symbols and letters on an item with no explanation for the differences. It’s like looking at the laundry tag on clothes items and being presented with 5 symbols with no reference “do I wash with cold water and then machine dry? Or wash in warm water and hang dry?” (By the way if someone could explain these to me I’d be forever grateful.) In the electronics world an item you might come across like this is your standard everyday SD Card, but luckily we’re here to help explain these differences and get you the card that suits your needs best.



RoombaWe all hate the daily and weekly chores. Dishes, vacuuming, dusting, cleaning the pool or gutters… I’m tired just thinking about them. Between kids, pets, and busy social lives (or just wanting to relax) no one wants to spend more time cleaning than they have to. Wouldn’t it be awesome if there was a robot to do at least some of these chores for us? The great news is there is!

Interstellar Finally Available at Best Buy!

by Senior Social Media Specialist Senior Social Media Specialist ‎03-31-2015 12:39 PM - edited ‎03-31-2015 12:42 PM

InterstellarI don’t know about you, but I am somewhat of a sucker for science fiction. Growing up, I would spend hours vegging out on episodes of Star Trek, Star Wars marathons, and everything in-between. I once made my family late for a dinner because I could not be pulled away from my first viewing of 2001: A Space Odyssey. When Contact came out, I dug through my couch cushions to gather enough spare change and walked two miles to see the movie three days in a row. Knowing this about my experience with the genre- you might be able to guess how excited I was to see Interstellar.



Insignia 2-Slice Toaster

Insignia 2-Slice ToasterTo the people navigating Best Buy’s website, toasters may not be the most exciting of items. I am one of the many who look for the latest and greatest, how many pixels you can cram into a square inch and whatever else that can go longer, faster and better. When I start talking about toasters to co-workers and friends (whether they want to hear about it or not, I’ve either finally satiated my need for new tech (not likely) or the toaster is really cool.

Into The Woods Available for Pre-Order!

by Social Media Specialist Social Media Specialist on ‎03-09-2015 12:55 PM

Into The WoodsFor anyone who knows me (or you’ve happened to read some of my past blogs), I love a good fairytale story, so you can imagine how excited I was when I found out the Broadway hit “Into the Woods” was coming to the big screen late last year.  It was such a huge deal for my friends and I that we made sure to purchase tickets ahead of time.  Despite that, we arrived a whole hour ahead of the movie time to ensure we had the best seat possible. What’s even worse is that I’m sure we were the most obnoxious people there, as we were “softly” singing along to the entire film (90% of the dialogue is through song). Don’t judge… there were other groups singing too!



The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five ArmiesTo say that I am a J.R.R. Tolkien fan would be an understatement. After all, I did name my corgi after one of his characters, Peregrin “Pippin” Took. As an avid Tolkien fan, I have impatiently awaited the return to Middle Earth as each movie released, all very well directed by Peter Jackson.



A Farewell to Leonard Nimoy

by Social Media Specialist Social Media Specialist ‎03-05-2015 11:05 AM - edited ‎03-05-2015 02:26 PM

NimoyWhen Leonard Nimoy passed away last week, I took a long moment of reflection. He was like an old friend to me though we never met. Of course, when I think of Mr. Nimoy, I most often remember him in his role as the glacial Vulcan First Officer of the Starship Enterprise. Back in the 20th Century, when I was young and foolish, he and his adventurous friends were my companions every day after school.


Blizzard Games Half Off This Week!

Windows 8Many of us were surprised to see the start menu disappear in the newest Windows update.  As the start screen had replaced most of the functionality of the start menu, the start menu was deemed no longer necessary and was removed from Windows 8.  Many users have encountered difficulty familiarizing themselves with the new layout, and Microsoft eventually added a start menu replacement within the release of windows 8.1. Here is a quick guide to help you get that accomplished.

The Hunger Games: MockingjayAs an avid fan of The Hunger Games saga, I’m ecstatic to begin counting down to the release of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 on 3/6/2015! I will definitely be watching a marathon of the first two installments to this saga before picking up Mockingjay –Part 1 to watch. I’m sure soon after I will be counting down to Mockingjay – Part 2 being released in theaters. Now I have to decide if I’ll be pre-ordering the DVD, Blu-Ray, or the SteelBook version!
