Geek Beat: Black Friday Tech Shopping
Once again, we were able to join the bleary-eyed Hawaii News Now “Sunrise” morning crew on their annual pilgrimage to Honolulu’s retail hotspots for “Black Friday.”
Burt and I headed over to Pearlridge Center to recommend some tech gifts for Christmas. Although I’m an iPhone user, I was able to share some love with the Google Pixel smartphone, pretty much the nicest Android device on the market. Burt’s pick, thanks to a loaner from local photographer Ricky Li, was the GoPro Karma foldable drone, still hard to find online or in stores. Finally, a practical if somewhat repetitive pick, external batteries for your devices. The twist this year is new restrictions on shipping lithium ion batteries, meaning local retailers like Battery Bill have something to be merry about.
