There used to be a clear line in the sand between a great gift for kids and a great gift for adults. But the digital age has blurred that line — especially when it comes to technology and gadgets. These days it’s much more common for kids and their parents to share their gear, and with Father’s Day and Graduation coming up, there’s likely to be overlap in who wants what.
Mario Armstrong, Technology and Digital Lifestyle Commentator, offers up some of his favorite gift ideas for dads and grads:
SAMSUNG is transforming the TV experience through innovations in software and hardware. There’s no better example than the gorgeous 55” Samsung F8000 LED TV, which offers the very best 2D and 3D picture quality with eye-popping colors and high contrast. Whether Dad is a movie or sports buff, the Samsung F8000 offers seamless access to his favorite content. It delivers personalized programming based on his viewing preferences and what’s popular on the redesigned Samsung Smart Hub. The Smart Hub now offers five dynamic menu panels to help consumers manage and navigate different types of content. Also, now through June 15th, Samsung has a great offer. Surprise Dad with the TV of his dreams and treat yourself as well – your choice between a 29” Samsung F4000 LED TV or a DA-E670 wireless audio dock and HW-F450 soundbar.
The Nest® Learning Thermostat™ solves the hassle of programming your thermostat so you can easily save up to 20% on your heating and cooling bills. Use Nest like a manual thermostat for about a week (turn it up when you wake up, down when you leave the house, up when you come home, down when you go to sleep) and Nest will take it from there, creating a personalized heating and cooling schedule. The Nest also automatically turns itself down when no one’s home thanks to built-in activity sensors that can tell when the family’s out. That can save energy and money. And, if you want to control the temperature by remote control, apps are available on iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
Nest Learning Thermostat – $249.00
