Cookie Magazine recently invited us to submit our top choices for gadget gifts for dear old Dad for Father's Day. It's only a few weeks away, so check out the top picks not only from Unplggd, but also from the staff of Ubergizmo, Boing Boing Gadgets, Think Geek and Electronic House here.
Our two choices were the:
diNovo Mini: With this palm-size, cordless mini keyboard, he can download movies on his PC and watch them on his TV. "It combines the utility of a miniaturized keyboard/mouse with that of a video-game controller and is the most impressive home theater input device currently available," says Gregory Han, managing editor of Unplggd. "This is definitely a wow-factor item that any tech-loving dad would appreciate." $150, Logitech.
Samsung HT-X810: Think powerful surround sound in a wireless, mountable design. The built-in DVD player automatically converts standard DVDs to high-definition. Plus, it connects to any Bluetooth-enabled headset, so he can enjoy the heart-stopping sound of his favorite action films without waking the kids. "He'll be impressed with the performance of this sexy Steinway-gloss black soundbar speaker and wireless subwoofer," says Han, "and you'll be pleased that the aesthetics of your décor aren't compromised." $700, Samsung, Circuit City.
