You’ve Still Got a Friend in Me: Toy Story 4

Toy Story 4.jpg


To Infinity and Beyond! Toy Story has been warming the hearts of children and adults ever since it was first released in 1995. If you’re anything like me, the adventures of Woody, Buzz, and the rest of Andy’s toys had a large impact onToy Story 4 Cover.jpg your childhood.  Perhaps you tried tip-toeing back to your room to catch your toys in action, or even telling any toy you couldn’t take home that it was loved and would find a kid that could take it home because you didn’t want it to get discouraged during its wait on the toy shelf. (Or was that last one only something I did?)


Woody and Buzz have made a lot of friends over the years, and Toy Story 4 is filled with them; both old and new. Like many of those in the audience, Andy grew up. However, these toys are far from forgotten as they’ve been passed along to a sweet kindergartener named Bonnie.  Disney and Pixar made the film relatable to an audience that has grown up with these toys, as well kids that are just discovering the magic of Toy Story.


Grad Gifting

It is officially graduation season! That means caps, gowns, diplomas, BBQs, and lots of proud family and friends. That also means it is the season of gifting those grads with something to congratulate them on all of their hard work, and often help prepare them for the next steps they take. I am going to be shopping for a graduate in my family, and I couldn’t be happier. My younger sister is graduating from high school, and heading to my alma mater for college! Now I’ve got to figure out what the perfect gift for the grad in my life is, and hopefully I can help you too!  Dorm.jpg

Little did I know is how much of an impact such a small piece of technology would make in my life. 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

by Senior Social Media Specialist Senior Social Media Specialist ‎08-22-2017 06:12 PM - edited ‎08-22-2017 06:15 PM (46,930 Views)

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.

Fortunately, Best Buy has a range of products that can help you get the most of that garage space.


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 (20,559 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.

The Year of VR

by ‎02-10-2016 04:00 PM - edited ‎02-27-2018 03:41 PM (47,727 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.

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.

Happy New Year Best Buy!

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

by Social Media Specialist Social Media Specialist on ‎10-30-2015 11:45 AM (16,110 Views)


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.

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

CPU CoolerJust because it’s getting cooler outside, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t think about how cool the components inside your computer are. Adding extra cooling to your system is not only a great way to increase the longevity of your computer, but can also positively impact its performance.

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!

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 on ‎09-18-2015 11:15 AM (17,028 Views)

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!

The Walking Dead

Zombie fans unite, for it is a great time to be "alive": Season 5 of The Walking Dead comes out Tuesday, August 25th! Also, we have a new series to feed our ghoulish appetites.

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.
