What Do You Get A Dad That Has Everything?

What Do You Get A Dad That Has Everything?

It’s Father’s Day and I wish dads out there a wonderful day with your sons and daughters. I never understood my father’s love as well as the sacrifices he made until the arrival of my daughter, Allison, a little over a year ago. That being said, it’s nice having one day out of year where dads all over the world are being shown how much they’re appreciated. Giving presents or a Father’s Day card is the norm and presents can range from a drawing to an expensive flatscreen TV.

So you're ready to get aboard a flight and you've decided you'd like to place your bag aboard a different flight. Why would you want to do that? You're a TSA agent and you'd like to test the system with $100 bill.

Lonely Planet Gives Several City Guide Apps Away Free During 2010 Holiday Season

Lonely Planet Gives Several City Guide Apps Away Free During 2010 Holiday Season

If you've ever traveled outside of your own country (or state or city for that matter), you know the importance of the most important tool you can have: the city guide. I personally have gone through a few cities overseas with nothing but a map, a backpack full of scraps of paper, and my wallet, but once I had the chance to grab a city guide booklet (this was back before smartphones), my whole experience changed. Flash forward to today when we've got these tiny screens we can keep in our pockets, and Lonely Planet has a collection of city guides you can grab and keep handy at the flick of the finger! And what's the big news today? Lonely Planet is giving away a batch of big cities away during this holiday season, totally freaking free of charge!

iPad is the New Christ

iPad is the New Christ

Or at least that's what the folks at One More Thing are saying, in a way, in a totally fun way, might I add, as they've here created for the world an all-apple Nativity Scene (aka Christmas Creche) for you to print out and set up for yourself. You'll find all your favorites here illustrated to witness the holy birth of the iPad. God, forgive them for their sin (if you would consider such a thing a sin,) as this is totally a bunch of fun and in no way takes away from the fun of your son's birthday party.

Skyara Sells Experience

Skyara Sells Experience

As it is the holiday season when I write this post, I suggest thinking about something like this for the person who says they want nothing, couldn't possibly see the value in another gift, that person who you cannot possibly satisfy. How about tea with MC Hammer? You TOO can do wild and crazy things like a Trap and Skeet Shoot with the co-founder of MySpace! All of this is available (at a cost) via this fabulous new place by the name of Skyara. They've got the two experiences I just mentioned up for promoting this startup - other events cost anywhere from $10 to over $100.

Gorillaz to Release FREE Album on Christmas Day, Entirely Recorded on iPad

What in the world?! Gorillaz, basically the greatest cartoon band of all time, are planning on releasing an album recorded entirely on an iPad FOR FREE on Christmas day. Gorillaz real-world frontman Damon Albarn told UK music paper NME: “I’ve made it on an ipad – I hope I’ll be making the first record on an iPad. ... I fell in love with my iPad as soon as I got it, so I’ve made a completely different kind of record. ... It’s ironic, being the sort of technophobe and Luddite that I am.” Super fun gifts are being released up until Christmas via an Advent Calendar on Gorillaz website.
