MORE IDEAS FOR DAD

published on June 4th, 2012 . by Steve Greenberg

Here are some more ideas—

For example–if the Dad in your life loves to BBQ– then check out iGrill (under $80)- this tech device takes BBQ-ing to a whole new level.  You stick the iGrill into the steaks, burgers, poultry, whatever and it monitors the internal temperature– and then through your iPhone or iPad it lets you know when the meat is done– cool huh?

For the Dad who is into looking good, check out the latest from Wahl. The company that introduced lithium ion to grooming now brings this advanced technology to a complete line of tools to cover all your grooming needs, Each of these tools, the Lithium Ion Plus Trimmer, Lithium Ion Clipper and Lithium Ion Shaver, are under $79.99 and combines Wahl’s patented ground-blade technology with lithium ion power to provide more torque, longer run time and precision cutting . Wahl’s Lithium Ion lineup is a smart choice, featuring green smart charge technology and one minute-quick charge feature.

For the Dad who has lots of tech toys and wants to protect them–check out Kaspersky ONE ($99.95 for 5 devices)– this is award-winning virus protection for multiple devices.  So you buy just one program and you can protect 3, 5 or up to 10 devices.  Smartphones, Macs, PC, Android tablets–all of Dad’s tech toys can be protected from threats and theft.

For the Dad (or anybody)who wants to get the most out of their camera–check out Photoshop Elements 10 (under $100)–this powerful program lets Dad fix those photo-faux pas.
So for example if Dad wanted to shoot a waterfall  but not the random tourists, he can use the magic of the “healing brush”  to make the people disappear– and in the typical family photo–Dad is missing because he’s taking the picture–abra cadabra—you can add dad from another picture—now he’s part of the family again.

And finally–for the Dad who might be looking to lose a few pounds–checkout the Fitbit Aria WiFi Smart Scale ($129.95)–this scale measures your weight, % of Body Fat, and Body Mass Index (BMI) and then sends that info through your home’s WiFi to your private online account–and then charts your progress–and you can track it from any computer, smartphone or tablet.  www.fitbit.com
