Lots of apple related stuff :/
This Father's Day it's time to tech your Dad. That's right, you know your dad is still living in the dark ages. He probably asked you within the last year how to transfer his VHS tapes to DVD, or maybe this is the first year he discovered Facebook or how to text on his cell phone. In either case you owe it to your father to give him a gadget that will stretch his horizons and bring him just a little bit closer to 2010. It doesn't have to be a robot with laser beams or a voice activated 3-D holographic digital video recorder, but at least put something into his life that will keep him from embarrassing himself (or you!) at the next family picnic. Better yet, use him as a catalyst to upgrade your whole family!

My dad could not possibly care less about anything on that list. If it has nothing to do with woodwork, or if it's not a book (the real kind, made of paper), he wouldn't be interested in the least. Come to think of it, there ain't much that appeals to me either....Good Lord above! I'm turning into my father! Sigh....

Sounds like some of you want a "ME" list, not a Father's Day list!

Nothing says father day like a trip to to the Apple store for an overpriced iPod Nano, Bose iPod dock for the office and some Beats by Dr. Dre to block out all the nagging from the kids and the wife.
