Father's Day 2011 High-Tech Gift Guide


And what about Dads whose middles are a bit larger than their arms are long? No worries. You can customize the sizing as well. Check out the site for the wide selection of fabrics.


Case-Mate Custom Case $35

Remember when we made cement handprints for Dad? So last century. Now we can design custom cases for his smartphone with DIY cases from Case-Mate. You can borrow inspiration from his favorite artist and design something you know he'll love, or, simply upload a photo of the kids or the family and he can carry it with him everywhere his phone goes…which, of course, is everywhere.


Barnes & Noble All-New Nook Simple Touch Reader $139

This touchscreen e-reader is the simplest and most affordable yet. The screen is all of 6-inches, making it something you'll want to take along with you on vacation or a business trip. A tap of the touchscreen lets you highlight passages, adjust font size, even look up the definition of words. The E Ink display means you'll have an easier time reading in sunlight and battery life is a promised two months. The social feature lets you see recommendations from friends or show them what you're reading, and my favorite new feature; if you're in the middle of a chapter, it now tells you how many pages until you get to turn out the lights and hit the sack.
