7 Tech Toys for Dad
Surprise your dad on Father’s Day with these handy tech tools and cool phone apps.
1. iPad Dad
Stylish enough for everyday use yet engineered for military-worthy durability, the rugged Griffin Survivor Case is a great gift for gadget-loving patres familias. Made of polycarbonate and silicone, this super shell includes a clip-on stand and hinged port covers to keep out dust.
2. 3-D Den
No man cave is complete without a tricked-out entertainment system. Spoil the lad in your life with the Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 3010 Projector with integrated speakers-hook it up to cable and he’ll feel like he’s at the game.
3. Vac Attack
Heads up, housekeeping-phobic. A DustBuster on steroids, the Dyson DC35 Multi Floor is powered by a motor that spins up to three times as fast as conventional models. Cordless, lightweight and perfect for cars, it’s less like a vacuum and more like a futuristic weapon to wield against the forces of dirt.
4. Great Expectations
Pregnant Dad walks fathers-to-be through what’s coming, with weekly info and tips. A tab for contacts and appointments makes it easy to keep track of doctors and check-ups.
5. Gas Station
Help him track mileage and calculate fuel expenses with the Gas Cubby, a fuel economy calculator and car maintenance and service log. It graphs usage, supports multiple vehicles, exports to Excel and can even be programmed to send service reminders.
6. Jock Stock
TSN Mobile has up-to-the-minute deets on scores, standings and sports news. The comprehensive app features full season schedules, TSN radio and a customizable home page.
