Perfect Tech Gift For Your Man
Birthday shopping for the special guy in your life can be taxing -- especially if you aren't quite sure where your relationship is going yet! Whether you just started dating or you’ve been married for years, knowing the rules of gift giving can help ensure you’re giving your gent a great, yet appropriate gift.
Here’s a helpful guide to finding the perfect tech gift for your guy -- at every stage of a relationship:
When you first start dating, you’ll want to get him something nice, but not freak him out by spending too much money.
Think about accessorizing his mobile electronics collection while making his life easier with portable power. The Justin Power Case by Innovative Technology is a lightweight case that protects an iPad while giving it and all your other mobile devices a boost through the case’s universal USB charging port and built-in rechargeable slim-line battery.
Whether he is a bystander or an adventurer, if your boyfriend likes his music, podcasts or sports stats wherever he is, a Bluetooth enabled water-resistant speaker, such as the Slingshot Speaker from BlueFlame, allows him to bring his music and news in the shower, to the beach, by the pool, or tailgating at his team’s game.
Is he an active mobile guy? Consider upgrading his uncomfortable, lower quality earbuds with the Munitio SV Mobile Performance Earphones. Ideal for runners, bikers, snowboarders, or any weekend warrior, these gift-priced buds also offer an in-line mic for calls on-the-go.
Want to spoil your husband on his first birthday as a married man? For serious audio fans, consider a pair of SVS`s Bookshelf Speakers, which provide a massive soundstage with refined acoustics so you’ll never need a night out at the movie theater again.
When the focus has shifted from spoiling your husband to spoiling the kids, look for a gift that benefits the home and prevents the need for that “honey-do” list. A high-quality silent garage door opener is the perfect home improvement gift for you, for him, for the house. Look for an energy-efficient model with safety features that’s also battery backup compatible, such as those from Linear.
I f your kids have moved out, now is the time to travel and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Transform your space into a high-tech smart home and give the gift of peace of mind for those times when you’re away.
A Control4 home automation system lets you monitor and remotely manage your home’s lighting, climate control and security from the company’s MyHome app on your smartphone or tablet from nearly anywhere in the world. When you are home, enjoy the benefits of an automated system that can control your home theater, music and intercom.
Give your man a present that not only complements his tastes, but complements your relationship as well. (StatePoint)
Live grenade found at a Goodwill
First things first: The grenade was safely detonated by police and there were no injuries. WXII 12 News is reporting that police in Winston-Salem, North Carolina are currently investigating into how a live grenade wound up in a Goodwill store. The Winston-Salem Journal reports that the grenade is believed to have been donated a WEEK ago and was inside one of their collection boxes. When police were called it was sitting on a desk, where it had been placed by the thrift store’s employees.
The Journal writes that Thomas Royal, a spokesman for Goodwill in North Carolina, told them that employees didn't realize that they truly had a live and dangerous weapon on their hands. Arthur Gibel, Goodwill’s executive director, told the newspaper that many inert and non-dangerous grenades are donated to the stores every year.
When police were finally alerted, a bomb squad determined that it was, in fact, a live grenade and detonated it safely. WXII writes that police want to remind the public, “not to touch or move a suspicious or potentially dangerous device and instead contact law enforcement.” Winston-Salem police are also asking anyone who might have information regarding this incident to call them at 336-773-7700.
A Minnesota teenager scored a one-in-a-million game-saving shot on the basketball court - and then did it again.
Easton Gamoke, 13, a student at Winona Middle School in Minnesota, got the ball with seconds left on the clock, and his team drawing a crucial tournament game.
He hurled it the length of the court and - amazingly - it curved into the hoop just as the buzzer went, making Easton a school hero.
"It didn't look like it was going in at first," he said. "But it started curving towards the hoop."
A clip of his heroics was uploaded on to YouTube, where it quickly racked up over a million hits.
Fox News went out to film him in action - and asked him to try the miracle shot one more time.
And, as a new YouTube video shows, he repeated his winning shot perfectly - shooting the hoop from the length of the court for the second time
