My Gift Recommendations for Father’s Day 2017

Father’s Day is coming up on June 18th, so you now have less than 10 days to get your father’s gift for the holiday. I am here to hopefully make that job a little easier. 

As we all know, boys like their toys and Father’s Day is no exception to that fact. Here are some good tech gift ideas for your dad.

  • AirPods: Even though they are still somewhat hard to find through Apple, AT&T can still get a pair shipped within 3-5 business days. However, the best option right now is to get them through Amazon. The reason behind this is that you can get them with Amazon Prime two-day free shipping, which is better than what both Apple and AT&T can provide at the moment.
  • Apple Pencil: For the father who is an artist or likes to draw on his iPad, the Apple Pencil does a great job with this. The Apple Pencil can be purchased through Apple for $99.
  • Apple TV: With the way how everyone and their dog is streaming their TV instead of paying a ridiculous price for cable and satellite television, the Apple TV is a great way to consume videos and content on the big screen. The device has apps for your usual services like Netflix and Hulu, but also has apps for live streaming TV such as Sling TV and PlayStation Vue, along with FOX Sports GO. Later this year, Amazon Video will be available on it. There are two versions of the current Apple TV, which are the 32GB and 64GB versions. The 32GB version of the streaming box is $149, but the 64GB version is on sale through Best Buy for $189 (regularly $199).
  • iTunes gift cards: A simple gift card to iTunes would suffice, as well. With its amazing catalog of movies, TV shows, music, and apps, it’s a great way for a father to celebrate his Father’s Day.
  • Mac Finder icon pillow: Although not an official Apple product, this is a great gift if your dad is a big Mac user. The pillow is created by Throwboy, which makes geeky themed pillows for other websites such as YouTube and Tumblr. As a user of the pillow myself, I can say that it is a nice gift and certainly one that a father will never forget. As for how the Mrs. likes it…yeah, let’s not go there. The pillow is currently $29.99 through Throwboy.
  • Tech support coupons: Have a father that is not so tech savvy? Well, create a tech support coupon book. This way, if your father needs any sort of help with his smartphone, tablet, or laptop, he can redeem a coupon to get the necessary help he needs.
  • Apple Music: Lastly, Apple Music is a great gift to get the father in the family. He likely has a lot of music that he has purchased through iTunes, but who wants to spend $1.29 per song on iTunes every time he finds a song he likes. With Apple Music, the fee is $9.99 per month but with the biggest music catalog imaginable. Apple Music also launched its own original programming this past week with new episodes of Planet of the Apps being released every Tuesday night, and the new CarPool Karaoke series debuting in August. It’s a great time to be joining Apple Music.

We have heard you may make money off of advertisers. Is it really a significant enough total make this worth it? Or does the actual benefit in blogging originate from the publicity you get? I’m a bellydancer and I dance at private parties and events. How could I make use of a blog to obtain more business? We have heard about people who have products to market using sites, but I actually don’t have a “product”, just me!.

Jeder hat schon die ein oder andere wilde Party hinter sich und kann sich nur noch grob an deren Ausgang erinnern. Manchmal schafft man den Heimweg, ohne sich am nächsten Tag an diesen zurückerinnern zu können. Doch wenn man nicht so viel Glück hat, dann hat man auf seinem Heimweg irgendwo seinen verloren. Sollte dies der Fall sein, dann kann man während der Nacht in der Regel noch bei Freunden übernachten. Der ein oder andere hat auch bestimmt schon mal vor der geschlafen und ist am nächsten Morgen unlieb von den Nachbarn geweckt worden. Ist man dann wieder bei klarem Verstand, dann muss man sich darum kümmern, dass man wieder in seine Wohnung kommt. In einem solchen Fall führt in der Regel kein Weg an einem Profi vorbei. Hilfe von Spezialisten Auch wenn man keinen Zugang zur eigenen Wohnung hat, so haben die meisten Menschen doch noch in irgendeiner Form Zugang zum Internet. Hier kann man schnell und unkompliziert nach einem suchen. Sucht man zum Beispiel nach Mainz so findet man direkt lokale Ergebnisse. Hier kann man dann die verschiedenen Anbieter vergleichen und sich so für einen passenden entscheiden. Wichtig ist nur, dass man die Preise und Leistungen auch wirklich gründlich vergleicht, um so einer Kostenfalle zu entgehen.

War äußerst zufrieden mit den Diensten Herr s. Kam vom feiern um ca 3Uhr Nachts nach Hause und bemerkte das ich meinen Schlüssel daheim vergessen hatte. Er war innerhalb 30 min da und öffnete meine Türe problemlos.
