Gadgets, Gadgets, & More Gadgets
Now it’s time for some hard-core gadgets for your hard-core gadget-loving Dad. Looking for the best of the best? Introduced last summer, the iPhone is, hands down, the single best gadget of the year. This completely revolutionary phone-cum-PDA-cum-audio player has generated moreÂ water-cooler interest and enterprise excitement than any other device in recent years.Â As the Apple website touts, the iPhone allows you (or Dad) to make phone calls, check your email, browse the web and use your iPod, all with the touch of your finger.
And rest assured, despite the nauseating (over)hype, usability experts agree that the iPhone delivers everything it promises – and then some. Of course, at around $400 plus a monthly service contract, the iPhone isn’t for everyone. Read: If dear old Dad doesn’t even check his voice mail and can’t figure out how to use his old phone’s camera, then an iPhone might not be your best investment. (On the other hand, with its fool-proof usability, the iPhone just might be right for him after all!)
