Why the Apple Watch is heading to Best Buy, not Target

The proof is in the pudding - stores like Target and Walmart are making a mockery of the point-of-sale mobile device business.

Apple Watch coming soon to a Best Buy near you

Like any Apple product, or maybe even more so, the Apple Watch has had its share of believers and naysayers.

Dark Pit amiibo arrives at Best Buy this month

The amiibo craze shows no signs of slowing, and getting your hands on the latest one is (usually) quite the battle. Pre-orders have been cancelled, a shipment truck has been hijacked, and websites have been crashed all in the name of getting the latest lineup. Enter Dark Pit, the next amiibo to arrive as part of Nintendo’s rollouts this year. The figurine will be hitting digital shelves at Best Buy soon, but the retailer has announced ahead of time that it is instituting some ordering limitations to (hopefully) quell the chaos.
