What She Said! with Christine Bentley & Kate Wheeler

Kasie Savage to the rescue with Best Buy’s Top 20 Picks for gift giving season!


Who doesn’t love giving and receiving the latest and greatest in tech toys and gadgets? But let’s face it, if you’re…ahem…technically challenged, like myself, it can be really overwhelming to know what’s
hot and what’s well, not! As someone who as recently as 3 years ago owned and operated a neon pink flip phone, I’m what techies would call, a “late adopter”, but I am smart enough to ask the pros for help when I need it.  So I went to Best
Buy and here are Best Buy’s Top 20 picks!main-logo-1
