It's time for fathers around the world to stand up for their rights and just say "no" to yet another ugly tie to wear to the office the day after Father's Day. Get dad something he can use and appreciate with our 2011 Father's Day Tech Gift Guide.

HDTV: Replace dad's antiquated rear projection boob tube with a new HDTV. Go big with screen size to compensate for his failing eyesight.

Universal Remote: Get dad a universal remote and most importantly program it for him. Then spend the time to tech him (and mom too) how to use it, writing down instructions if need be, so he doesn't call you every other day asking for reminders.

NetFlix: Let dad know it's finally time to trash the huge VHS movie collection. Sign the old man up for NetFlix so he's got new content to watch on his new TV.

Grill: If man is ordered out of the kitchen then surely the grill is his domain. Buy dad a fancy new outdoor cooker and reap the delicious benefits.

Grilling Gadgets: A grill-man must have his tools, so supply him with grilling gadgets to go along with that new grill.

Grooming: Embarrassed by an unkempt father, unshaven and disheveled? Little kids at the pool running away in horror upon seeing his hairy back? Treat him to personal hygiene tech such as a nice new electric razor or body hair shaver.

eBook Reader / Tablet: Give dad something to read with an eBook Reader or a high tech tablet like the iPad.
