I use tech gadgets all day long. I use a DSLR and camcorder. I spent hours logged on to my desktop computer and laptop. My smartphone is “attached” to the end of my arm. With all this exposure to technology, you would think I would be tech savvy. That I would use tech devices with ease. That I would rattle of switch seamlessly from one device to the next. But you would be VERY wrong.
I’m not tech savvy. Tech gadgets and me are NOT like “carrots and peas” despite what Forrest Gump claims. Tech gadgets and me are MORE like “oil and water.” I have been known to push buttons randomly on cameras. I am guilty of screaming at my phone for not doing what I want it to do. And don’t get me started on the FOUR remote controls for the TV. That’s right I said FOUR. I never know which remote control to use. Do I push a button on the DVD remote control to turn on FIOS TV? Or do I push the button on the TV remote? Or do I push both? And why can’t I turn on FIOS with only the FIOS remote? And let’s not talk about the gaming systems and their assorted controllers? Let’s just NOT. My house is a riddle of tech gadgets hidden in an enigma trapped in a conundrum. It’s a mess.
But there is hope! And that hope comes in the form of one tech-savvy husband, two tech-whiz teens, and one tech-centric tween. What would I do without my kids and husband? I would more than likely stare at the TV willing the DVD to start up with only mind control and a twitchy trigger finger at my disposal. The Musings from Me family has enough tech-savvy members who are willing…uh…resigned to rescue me from the tangle of gadgets, devices, wires, cables, and remote controls.
Though I am not tech-savvy, I want to have the best high-tech gadgets and devices I can. I like to start out on the right foot even if later on I falter a bit! Over the years, I have found great deals at Best Buy. Best Buy is a great Holiday Shopping Destination. With expert service and unbeatable prices there are SO many top gifts for your list this holiday. I am pleased to feature so many fabulous tech gadgets and devices from Best Buy in my Holiday Gift Guide.
