Father’s Day Gift Idea: Samsung Focus Windows Phone – Giveaway

Father’s day is almost drawn to a close but I’m sure there are many now looking for a gift – still – and you know guys love technology… While you know I’m totally an apple fan boy… I’ve heard great things about the Samsung Windows Phone and I thought I’d give it a test drive (which was provided by the Microsoft team). The phone was rock solid… I was really impressed with the deep integration of outlook, xbox live, and instant integration of facebook.

If they’re not into apple and the others arent seeming like a great fit – this phone is amazing – I can certainly seeing this becoming the business man’s of choice phone with its outlook integration.

Why Windows Phone?

  • Get his head in the game: Windows Phone is the only smartphone with Xbox LIVE, which means you can play Xbox LIVE games and earn Gamerscore points anywhere, anytime. And with titles like Need for Speed, Assassin’s Creed and Guitar Hero 5, Dad can really get his game on.
  • Jamming to the oldies: With the power of the Zune music service and great apps like LastFM, Dad can listen to his favorite LPs and discover new music right on his phone. And with a Zune Pass subscription, he can stream and download unlimited music every month for just the price of a CD. Did we mention it also works on your PC, through the browser and his Xbox too?
  • See what’s important: With a Windows Phone, Dad can fully customize his Start Screen with all the things that matter most. Pin directions to the baseball park, favorite apps, anything!

  • Dad-approved apps: Whether he is getting the latest sports scores, shopping for a weekend project or lighting up the BBQ,Windows Phones have all the apps Dad wants. I’ve included some of our favorite apps for Dad below.

Windows Phones are available from every major US carrier, and the Samsung Focus Windows Phone from AT&T starts at just $49.99 with a 2 year contract and recently ranked higher in overall customer satisfaction than the iPhone in a PC Mag survey.

Our Father’s Day App Picks:

  • Home Depot: No need to spend your Saturday wandering the isles at the hardware store. With the Home Depot app you can research and purchase more than 100,000 products right from your phone.
  • ESPN Score Center: Dad can keep up with his favorite teams from anywhere, with ESPN ScoreCenter. Get scores, news, and standings from hundreds of sports leagues around the world.
  • MyLife: This exclusive app helps Dad manage all his duties, including capturing and saving those special moments in his family’s life from his child’s first steps to their first gold ribbon at a swim meet in the dedicated ‘memories’ mini app. Also track birthdays, to-do lists and other details with other mini apps built right in.
  • MLB Now: Summertime is baseball season. MLB Now gives dad current scores, standings, stats, news and even MLB tweets right at his fingertips.
  • Gourmet Burger: Is BBQ one of dad’s favorite summer pastimes? With the Gourmet Burger app, he can be the king of the cookout with recipes for tasty new options from the hot pepper & pork burger to the Mediterranean lamb burger
  • Paramount – True Grit: With Paramount’s True Grit Enhanced Movie App, dad can experience the Oscar nominated films like never before. With behind the scenes content, easy viewing and the ability to share favorite clips via Facebook, dad will think he’s one of the Coen brothers.

Specifically, the giveaway winner will receive a Samsung Focus (with 30 days of service from AT&T).

I’ve been loving a few clothing companies lately that are really doing amazing things for kids and for dads.

With Father’s Day quickly approaching you can stop scrambling to find dad the perfect gift.

Kourtney Kardashian - Mason wears Blume!

Blume is the innovator of the “Little Man” collection- the real handmade ties on tees have been featured in lots of glossy mags like PEOPLE, US Weekly, and OK! with trendsetting celebrity tots like the Beckham Boys, Kourtney Kardashian’s son- Mason, and Tori Spelling’s son – Liam.  All the buzz inspired us to enlarge the offerings  – literally! Just ask Shaquille O’Neal who got the ball rolling on this new trend when he requested a week’s worth of tie tees to match all the ones his sons had – yes, they all really do own Blume Tie Tees! Little boys hope to grow up to be just like their fathers, until then they can dress like them with Blume!
Blume prides itself on creating comfortable, fun, fashionable items for the whole family. Blume collections can be found in fine stores nationwide like Barneys and online at www.blumeguy.com and www.blumebaby.com.

DaddyScrubs – For those that want to be there during the c-section and declare I’m the daddy (not the doctor) or just to have some cozy clothes to hang around the house Daddy Scrubs is just that… Http://www.daddyscrubs.com as another option.

 

 

 

 

Dapper Dude from Diaper Dude – We all know and love the Diaper Dude diaper bags – they’ve come out with a really cute line of father/son ties.  The ties come in two different sizes Boys Zipper Tie 14” (age 3T-6) or Youth Zipper Tie 17” (age 7-12). What is a Zipper Tie?
