Happy father's day!

Father’s Day is right around the corner, and we wanted to let you know a few gadgets dear old dad may be wanting. Who better to ask than a dad? So we asked a few around the ITS office what latest piece of technology they had their eye on.

The first gadget was Apple TV. Not only can you watch your favourite shows, movies or games in 1080p HD, but you can also get access to Netflix, Youtube, Vimeo and more! Not to mention you can play content from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. How cool is that?

Has your dad been eyeing a Smart TV HDMI Adapter? What this thumb-sized piece of equipment does is turn any TV into a Smart TV - without the touch screen abilities, of course. Add AirPlay to your TV and you can download apps for Google Play Store to stream videos, play games, go on the internet, and if you’re feeling really adventurous, attach a video camera and you can Skype on your tv!

Maybe your dad isn’t one for gadgets and trinkets? Go old school. Gift Certificates for washing his car, making him lunch, mowing the lawn, or just going out to dinner can be exactly what he wants this Father’s Day.

Happy Father’s Day to all you current or expecting dads, and enjoy your day! You deserve it.
