For as long as there’s been a Father’s Day, there’s been the cliche’s of the ugly tie, or odorous soap on a rope. And you think these things are only cliches, until you watch your brother (age 37) give your Dad a crocheted tie as a “gag gift”, and you say, we have got to do better than this. And we can. And we will. Let’s make Father’s Day work for Dad, and get him something that he really wants to be seen using.
Tablets are incredibly convenient tools, for work and for fun. Perfect for quick notes on a job site or quick research during a meeting, tablets also let you surf the net while hanging in your hammock, or ignore what the kid’s are watching while streaming Season Six of the Simpson’s to your own personal TV. They’re lighter and smaller than a lap-top, so they’re easy to carry, and easier still to just pull out and start using. The larger full screen allows better surfing and better graphics than a smartphone, and makes typing a whole lot easier as well. So get Dad something he’ll remember, and not for negative reasons.
