Google Home and Pixel Smartphone – Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Google Home and Google Pixel Smartphone

Are you still looking for a Father’s Day gift idea for dad? If you are, then you should consider the Google Home personal assistant device or the Google Pixel smartphone. I’ve been demoing the two devices for the last few days. I think they are both awesome and I would love to receive either one (or both) for Father’s Day. BTW, Verizon sent me loaners for review on my dad blog. As some of you know, Verizon’s network gives customers the broadest coverage, best speeds, and unsurpassed reliability.

Canary Home Security System Review and Giveaway – geeky gift idea

Canary all-in-one home security system

Looking for a holiday gift idea? How about a Canary all-in-one home security system. The company sent me a unit for review on my dad blog (I’m also giving away a Canary to a lucky reader). I love the Canary home security system. It’s easy to use and is better than my other video system. I think the Canary is a cool gift for the geek dad or mom in your life. Canary offers the ultimate security solution with its built-in microphone, HD camera, motion detection sensors, siren and authority alert options, night vision, and air safety technology. The Canary comes in three colors: black, white or silver. It has a list price of $199, but it will be on sale for $179 in North America (US and Canada) from December 13th to December 26th.

SquareTrade Giveaway – win an extended warranty for your iPhone 5 or other device

SquareTrade extended warranties company

Today’s giveaway is sponsored by SquareTrade, which is an extended warranties company. To be honest, I almost turned down their offer to host a giveaway on my dad blog because an extended warranty isn’t something most people want to win or read about. But extended warranties are practical and can be big money savers if something bad happens to your shining new device. Especially if you have kids. Children and devices are generally not a good combination. That’s why I always get nervous when my kids (especially my toddler) are playing with my tech gadgets.
