MobileSyrup goes holiday shopping with Cory Joseph

When our friends at Best Buy let us know that Cory Joseph was looking for some help picking new tech for the holidays, we jumped at the chance to lend a hand. First, helping Canadians out with their tech needs is just what we do. Second, HE’S CORY FREAKING JOSEPH, POINT GUARD FROM TORONTO, #6 FROM THE SIX.


While we peppered Cory with questions about game-winning shots (watch this), off-season training (Cory says the team uses some wearable tech to track activity and sleep patterns), and the upcoming All-Star Game (he’s excited about what it will mean for the city).

Cory also peppered us with questions about the latest smartphones, smartwatches and accessories. He had already picked up the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, but didn’t know about the functionality hidden in the smartphone’s sweet curves. Pickering’s finest was also excited to learn about all the ways the phone could work together with the Gear S2, which he got for his mom (awww!).

In the end, it was a successful holiday shopping experience, at discount rates thanks to Best Buy’s current Friends and Family holiday sale.

So, Cory, about those courtside tickets we talked about…
