Dad works hard all year to provide you with the good things in life. Now it’s your turn to show him how much you appreciate everything he’s done for you and the family. Here are some gadgets that any Dad would be happy to own.
Noise Canceling Headphones
For the frequent flier Dad or just a Dad working in a noisy environment; the Bose QuietComfort 3 headphones ($315), Panasonic RP-HC-55 ($69 – and got a great review from Consumer Reports), or JVC HANC250 ($110) would make great gifts.
Netbook
Netbooks make great travel companions. They’re small, lightweight and the battery lasts a long time. Maybe you can go in with the rest of the family for an Asus EEE PC 1000HE ($375) or Samsung NC10 (around $400).
Digital Photo Frames
Smaller 5 – 7 inch displays like this Kodak EasyShare P520 (under $100) might fit better on a desk in the office while an 8 – 10” frame like the Kodak EasyShare W1020 (under $200) would look good on a bookshelf or mantle.
For Golfers
The Garmin GolfLogix GPS sells for just under $300. It automatically recognizes the golf course and tells you how far it is to the green.
Altec Lansing orbit MP3 Speaker
This compact battery powered speaker can fill up a small room with music from a laptop, MP3 player, or iPhone. It’s not expensive at $39.95.
New Flip Video Camera
The latest version of the Flip camcorder is the Ultra (and Ultra HD). The new cameras now take 2 hours of video and allow for playback on a TV. The Ultra and Ultra HD cost $149 and $200 respectively
Following the Games Away From Home
Yes, you can get a lot of programming over the Internet but not the premium channels on your cable or satellite box without one of these; Slingbox Solo goes for around $179 a Slingbox Pro HD costs $299

iPhone Accessories
Griffin Technology’s iTrip Auto Universal Plus transmitter and charger works with any player ($49). The incase Power Slider can double the battery life of an iPhone for $79. Griffin’s Navigate provides a tiny controller for your iPod of iPhone and adds an FM radio too. It costs $59.
Green Gifts
Belkin’s remote controlled power strip eliminates “phantom” power ($36), Freeplay handcrank charger uses human power. ($28), Hymini wind turbine charger uses windpower ($50), and P3 International’s Kill A Watt power meter could give your Dad a good argument to get you to turn off your TV ($25).
