Gadgets and Gizmos for a Geeky Father's Day

By Nathan Eddy  |  Posted 2013-06-13

Before you start running out of time, perhaps now is a good time to start thinking about what you're going to get your dad for Father's Day this year. The days of a "World's No. 1 Dad" coffee mug or a necktie as an appropriate Father's Day gift have long since passed, what with the multitude of high-tech gadgets and gizmos our fathers crave these days. From tablet computers to smartphones, video game consoles and Web-connected digital cameras, today's dads may not have grown up with some of the more familiar cutting-edge technologies, but that doesn't mean they wouldn't be overjoyed to receive an iPad Mini or Samsung Galaxy S 4 Active on Father's Day. Indeed, the vast majority (80 percent) of dads would rather receive a new state-of-the-art flat-screen TV to watch this year's NBA or NHL playoffs for a Father's Day gift than tickets to a championship game, according to a survey by online and mobile smart shopping service BuyVia. The survey also revealed that the majority of dads (63 percent) would rather receive the new Google Glass for a Father's Day gift versus a new set of golf clubs. And 52 percent of dads would rather receive a Sony PS4 over the recently released Xbox One.
