So, what is the top tech during lockdown that people are really buying? Officially we have been in Lockdown for 8 weeks now, yup 8 whole weeks (or 2 months) since the 23rd of March. It’s kind of hard to say that really isn’t it? Something we never ever thought would or could happen, but it has and we just have to get used to it.
So during the lockdown we have watched people magnificently turn their talents and minds to all sorts of ingenious things to help pass the time and entertain us all from Zoom meetings to charity fundraisers. But behind pretty much everything that has been done and everything we do these days is tech, marvellous tech. You just can’t imagine what a lockdown would have been like without it, can you? We all know tech is fab and we have our favourite bits, but what about everyone else? What are they buying? What is hot right now – and am I missing out?
Well worry no more, because we have been poking through the secret besteseller lists on Amazon & Currys, and have put together a list of what top tech other people are really buying during the lockdown right now. So sit back and read this (on your… well, your tech obvs…)
