PHOENIX - If you're still scratching your head about what to get for Dad this Sunday, I found a few cool gadgets that may fit the bill.
Creative WP-350 Bluetooth Stereo Headphones - $99.99
Anyone who listens to music or watches movies on their smartphone, tablet or PC could appreciate a set of wireless headphones. The Creative WP-350 is a sleek compact set of headphones that also packs a microphone. If you're jamming to your favorite tunes via your smartphone and a call comes in, hit the button on the side and you can take the call. When you're done hit the button to hang up and your music will resume. The WP-350 will work with most Bluetooth enabled smartphones, tablets and computers. Convenience doesn't come cheap though, they sell for $99.99.
WD TV Live Hub
Transform your dumb TV into a smart TV with the WD TV Live Hub . It's a black box that sits near your TV and connects via HDMI. It has a 1 terabyte drive inside to store all of your music, photos and videos. Enjoy your media in high-def on the big screen with the included remote. Once on the network, you'll be able to access that drive from your computer and smartphone too. The WD TV Live Hub also works with various streaming services including Netflix, Youtube and Blockbuster. You can even check your Facebook page. The WD TV smartphone app makes it easy to wirelessly transfer your photos and videos from your phone to your TV so you can share them with your friends and family. Western Digital just added support for SlingBox too.
The WD TV Live Hub is a great way to make your TV "smart." It sells for $199.99. If you don't need the included storage, the standard WD TV Live box sells for $99.99 . It still offers the same streaming services and you can play back your media by plugging in a hard drive or thumb drive of your own.
Logitech Harmony 700 Smart Remote
If the sea of remotes in your living room is becoming a drag, Dad may love the Logitech Harmony 700 remote . It has a color screen to display menu options and even channel icons. The remote is programmed on your PC where you simply tell it what type of TV, cable box, DVD player, etc you have. Then you sync that info with the remote via USB and you're ready to go. Programming a remote has never been this easy. The magic of the 700 is in the single button solutions. Press the "watch movie" button and the remote will power on your TV and DVD player, change the input on your TV and do the same to your home stereo if needed. It takes the confusion out of a home theater setup while combining up to six remotes into one. It also includes a rechargeable battery.
The 700 is slick but not cheap, it sells for $119.99. If you're willing to give up some features Logitech sells other models in the Harmony line for as little as $29.99. Check out all the models on the company's website .
