• Google, Best Buy & Others Form Alliance To Champion AllVid Adapter

    The FCC proposed something called AllVid last year, a device that would help deliver “multichannel video programming and Internet content” to whatever it’s connected to.

  • Best Buy Brings In Ozzy And Bieber To Completely Hose TechForward, Says Lawsuit

    You don’t see total betrayals like this every day. But if the facts that TechForward are alleging in their lawsuit (embedded below) against Best Buy are true, this is some truly sleazy stuff.

  • Motorola Xoom Will Cost $800 And Require A Data Plan, Says Leaked Best Buy Ad

    When we first saw of the Motorola Xoom at CES, we thought and said good things. How could you go wrong with a dual-core full Honeycomb tablet? Then we heard rumors that Motorola wanted to sell a lot, so that got us thinking that the price would be competitive. Then we started seeing rumors of an $800 price tag, and that made us sad. And now it has been all but confirmed that it will cost $800… Read More

  • HD Guru Turns Up The Dirt On Best Buy's Buy Back Program

    Best Buy wants to buy your old electronics. That’s actually nothing new. The retailer had trade in programs for years. Unlike those deals through 3rd party services, the new Buy Back plan will be sold like extended warranties and then rewards buyers a gift card when the product is turned back in. But is it worth it? HD Guru took a deep look at the HDTV section and discovered that in… Read More

  • Rumour: HTC Thunderbolt to hit Best Buy Feb 14th

    What you’re looking at above is a screenshot from a Best Buy inventory. Pretty amazing, eh? But why am I showing it to you? There seems to be nothing juicy about it. Y’see, it’s not all that it appears to be, my friend… Pulling off some serous sleuthing, Android Central forum member, paulmike3, noticed that the number seen up the top left of the image (highlighted as… Read More

  • Best Buy To Talk You Out Of Verizon iPhone (Which They Won't Have) With A BGR Blog Post

    We’re now just three weeks away from the launch of the iPhone on Verizon’s network (or two weeks if you’re already a Verizon customer). There’s no question it’s going to be a massive seller.

  • Best Buy sells Droid 2 Global and Droid Pros for cheap, Verizon gets mad, drops ban hammer

    If you thought that Best Buy selling the Droid 2 Global for $100, or the Droid Pro for $50, was a crazy-mad bargain, it seems that you weren’t the only one.

It’s so serious, in fact, that it seems Verizon are no longer activating any phones bought… Read More

  • White Dell Streak now available exclusively from Best Buy

    If you like white as much as you like large phones, then you’ll be chuffed to know that Best Buy now (exclusively) have the Dell Streak available in white. Well, kind of… It’s not all white: it’s white-backed, giving it a two-tone look reminiscent of 1920s gangster footwear. Read More

  • Tecca, Best Buy's Secret Weapon Against Competition

    On the surface, Tecca looks like a pretty cool service. You download an app, browse it for devices you’re looking at in store, and figure out if the price is right. How? By checking out online prices, most notably the prices available from Best Buy, one of the investors in Fuse Capital, creator of Tecca. Even if the app brings up 50 other prices from 50 other stores, the assumption here… Read More

    Best Buy CEO: The Reports Of Microsoft's Death Are Grossly Exaggerated… By Me.

Here’s the… Read More

    If you’re one of the unlucky few whose local Best Buy was not one of those selected to sell iPads, weep no more. Starting September 26th, Best Buy will have iPads at every one of its 1093 stores, though it’s unclear whether they will have a whole special Apple section like many other stores do.
