Dad, Pops, Padre … whatever you call the guy who helped raise you to be the mature, sensible, intelligent person you are, he’s due for some appreciation. This Father’s Day, RadioShack has the goods that will have everyone calling him “The Cool Dad.”
Remember when you were a kid and someone asked where the remote was and your dad would yell your name? It’s too bad you didn’t have the Logitech Harmony 650 Universal Remote. This bad boy controls up to 5 A/V components from over 5000 brands and will give your dad the power to master his electronic universe.
Sometimes, things break. When they do, make sure your dad is equipped with the RadioShack 20-piece bit-driver set. The alloy steel tips are built to last, and its ergonomic design makes it great for electronics projects, hobbies or general fixer-upper projects, too. Unfortunately, it can’t fix broken glass, so just blame that on your brother.
You love that your dad can stay young at heart while shredding the most intense air guitar solos, but it doesn’t mean you love his music. This year get him some AUVIO Stereo Wireless Headphones. They can extend up to 150 feet, so he can jam out or listen to the television from all over the house. Also, with rechargeable batteries and the ability to reduce noise, don’t be surprised if he rarely takes them off.
If your dad’s a guy who stays connected, then the new BlackBerry PlayBook is the perfect gift for him. With a 1GHz dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM, multitasking has never been easier. Business guy? The PlayBook seamlessly pairs with dad’s BlackBerry. It also supports Flash and can plug directly into an HDTV, so he can always show you the newest video he found about classic cars.
Your dad may be more advanced than the tape player, but as his tech-savvy offspring, bring him completely into the digital era with an Apple iPod touch. This touchscreen media monster stores up to 2000 songs or 8 hours of video, so he’ll have entertainment wherever he goes. With two built-in cameras, he can video call you with FaceTime you anytime he has questions about how to access and use thousands of apps and games.
Sure, you could get him another card and necktie, but this year, give your dad a gift that guides him into the 21st century. It’s the least you can do since he did pay for your diapers, food, and clothes.
For all of our dads out there who are in the know, what’s at the top of your wish list?
