National Cat Day: Celebrate Your Furry Friends!

by Social Media Specialist Social Media Specialist on ‎10-29-2018 01:33 PM (1,718 Views)

Baymax.jpg

 

Since rescuing a kitten five months ago, every day has felt like cat day. It didn’t take long for me to understand how people can become obsessed with their fur babies and opt to stay home cuddling them over going out.

Today, October 29, is National Cat Day in the Unites States. While it’s a great excuse to celebrate your furry friends, it’s also a day to consider opening your heart and home to a cat in need. For me, when I met my cat Baymax( who's pictured above) it pet camera.jpgwas like finding an instant best friend who gets to live with me.

 

Whether you already have a cat(s) to love, or are thinking of adding one to the family, we offer a lot of great products to make the process easier.

 

If you’re anything like me, you have a hard time being away from your cat while you’re at work and want to know what they’re up to when you’re away. Our PetCube WiFi Pet Camera allows you to watch your cat(s) on your smart phone when you can’t be there. While the adventures you see might be different from the movie The Secret Life of Pets, it will still be quite entertaining.

Good, Better, Best Breakfast at Best Buy

egg-cookerRaise your hand if you’re not a fan of breakfast foods.

 

*looks around nervously, lowers hand*

 

Okay, so maybe that’s not very common, but it’s true—for me, at least. I don’t remember the last time I woke up in the morning and thought, I’d like to eat an egg white omelet. Instead, I usually opt for a big cup of iced coffee and just power through until lunchtime. After all, doesn’t pizza sound far better than a salted egg?

 

That’s what I thought for a very long time until I started experimenting with breakfast foods a few weeks ago.

My GoPro has become an essential part of my gear and I foresee it being that way for a very long time. Whether I’m snowboarding, longboarding with my dog, on my motorcycle, or on the lake, my GoPro is right there with me to make sure I can capture those moments so I can share them later with my friends, family, and those naysayers who say, “pics or it didn’t happen!”.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

GOTG 2 1.jpgThere are movie franchises that I care a great deal about, like Alien and Star Trek, and others that I really don’t that are still enormously popular, like the Fast and Furious and Friday the 13th. There are venerable film series that have been trundling along for decades with various degrees of success like James Bond. And then there’s Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, an ongoing series of films that have not failed to be excellent in nearly every way — even when I didn’t think they possibly could be.

 

The latest entry in the MCU, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, adds yet another achievement to this series of films that already includes Iron Man, the Mighty Thor, Captain America, Doctor Strange, and a host of supporting heroes — and villains — in it’s ever expanding roster. A film critic once described The Lord of the Rings as having more characters than the Bible. The MCU embodies this sentiment like no other film franchise since.

Spider ManIn modern cinematic history, there have been three big screen Spider-Mans. Spider-Men? Fine. Three big screen Peter Parkers. All three actors have their merits and flaws, but which one is the best? So, to answer the question, I watched Spider-Man (2002) and The Amazing Spider-Man (2012) back to back to refresh my memory on Tobey Maguire’s and Andrew Garfield’s performances. I’ve watched Captain America: Civil War a few times, so Tom Holland’s is already fresh in my mind.

Independence Day Resurges

by Social Media Specialist Social Media Specialist on ‎07-21-2016 03:40 PM (15,289 Views)

Independence Day Resurgence.jpgIn 1996, Earth was invaded by extraterrestrials whose chief weapons were the cliches and tried-and-true tropes of science fiction. Gigantic spaceships positioned themselves over Earth’s major cities (Childhood’s End, Arthur C. Clarke’s seminal novel of 1953). The aliens were discovered by the detection of a seemingly interstellar broadcast (John Varley’s superior 1977 novel The Ophiuchi Hotline and Carl Sagan’s brilliant Contact). They were biomechanical in nature (Ridley Scott’s classic Alien). They had a gazillion fighters (every Star Wars movie) and impenetrable electromagnetic shields (Star Trek, but only here and there, really). They did not come in peace (every invasion movie in human history, except Steven Spielberg’s amazing Close Encounters of the Third Kind). They were defeated by a computer genius with a Macbook that greeted him with “Hello Dave” (Arthur C. Clarke again in Stanley Kubrick’s singular 2001: A Space Odyssey). In short, way back when Independence Day came out and I saw it for the first time, I left the theater feeling like I’d seen it before.

An Echo and a Tap

by Senior Social Media Specialist Senior Social Media Specialist on ‎05-08-2016 12:00 AM (15,568 Views)

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 (16,102 Views)

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

by Social Media Specialist Social Media Specialist ‎02-10-2016 04:00 PM - edited ‎02-27-2018 03:41 PM (39,980 Views)

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.

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!

My Top 4 Horror Films of All Time, So far

Frankenstein

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.

Best Buy has what you need to get geared up for a ghost hunt.

by Social Media Specialist Social Media Specialist on ‎10-28-2015 12:29 PM (11,567 Views)

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.
