My dad is tough to buy for. He’s 91. Skiing lessons are out.
The past few Father’s Days we’d gotten him a high end shave and cut at a place not far from his apartment¹. He liked the attention.
This year we went for hardware. The family bought my father a 15″ digital picture frame. We liked it because of some special features.
His “Pix-Star 15 Inch Wi-Fi Cloud Digital Photo Frame FotoConnect XD with Email, Online Providers, iPhone & Android app, DLNA and Motion Sensor (Black)” is equipped with WiFi. Once the frame is on the Internet anyone with its email address (or an app) can place pictures without my dad lifting a finger.
Voila! New pictures appear as if by magic.
So far it seems to be a hit. Our family has no shortage of photos to share.
¹ My father’s apartment will most likely be found mistakenly one day by a heat seeking missile. He normally keeps it in the 80°s.
