Well neither is my dad - heck he calls my blackberry a blueberry and I'm not joking. Poor guy he really wants to be and his one best friend is head of software procurement for IBM so you would think. My dad is 68 and has macular degeneration so he is loosing his sight slowly but I'll be darn if I dont try and geek him out some.
A "blueberry" ! That is so cute. With you as a daughter I am sure he will have no problems learning what he needs to. Maybe you should send him in the direction of geekdrop.com.
Uhhh yeah well after spending 2 hours trying to teach him how to email (using outlook) at work he can now open a email but if it has a attachment he generally will buzz me to come over to his office to show him again. Its really cute, he tries. He really just wants the MP3 player to hook up to his mustang so that he doesn't have to change CD's plus the whole its a gadget on the car he just has to try out. I'm thinking mom will be more likely to use the wifi - I don't see dad using that feature. I will however load on a few movies so he can watch them on the plane.
I'll probably buy my dad a few books from a series he has been reading.
2 minutes prior to reading this thread I checked on the shipment of my dad's gift which will arrive tomorrow. I was going to get him a zune. He really wants a MP3 player but he has vision problems. So after looking around I decided to get him the
So tomorrow I get to bring it home (its being shipped to my office), load his music on it, learn how to work it and then show him on Thur just before they head to Europe for 3 weeks. Nothing like getting it in just in time huh - I picked this one because it is touch screen (with a large screen), it has wifi, it will hold movies and music. I think he will really like it alot if not new toy for me.
I picked other cuz I still have no idea.
same here...absolutely no clue whatsoever.
My dad and I are going see Styx, REO Speedwagon, and .38 Special on fathers day... Yay!
I got my dad a card and some shirts... boring, I know. What do motorcycle fathers like?
