Good evening folks! On today’s edition of Tech Thursday we look at a few gifts for your geeky and tech savvy dad. This Sunday is Father’s Day and if you’re like me you want drool at the sight of awesome and completely dorky tech stuff. I would actually be happy with a 22 ounce porterhouse steak but tech gifts are right up there. So what is your dad like? Is he all about cameras? Is he a coffee drinker? Well I have a few items that you’re dad will dig. Mashable.com and The Huffington Post have several gifts for this Father’s Day.
The first gift is for the coffee drinking, sweet snacking, photography enthusiast dad in your life. Now, I don’t take a lot of pictures but I would buy this because it looks awesome! The item is a coffee mug but it’s not just a regular mug. This one looks exactly like a DSLR camera lens. The lid can be used to keep your drink warm or hold your snacks. The mug is as realistic as it gets and Mashable.com shows the KJB Security Camera Lens Cup is available from Amazon for the price of $12.99.
The next gift, also from Amazon, is the Kikkerland Putter Cup Golf Mug. This is the perfect gift for your golf-addicted father. The mug comes equipped with a hole at the bottom of the cup, a miniature golf ball, and a club that is also a pen. You’re dad will be able to practice his shots at a business meeting, or while working in his office. It’s a dorky yet fun gift for dad or any avid golfer.
Next we have the Video Memo from Sharper Image. This little gadget is for the dad with a crappy memory. I say this because I’m one of those dads with a crappy memory. I have an iPhone so I can use it to help me remember a lot of things but I might just buy this gadget. The Video Memo is shaped like a thought bubble and does just what the title says. It allows a three-minute video message and is even date-stamped. Now your dad will have no excuse for his bad memory.
Finally we have a gift for your geeky yet landscaping happy father. The Huffington Post has found a lawnmower from earthtechling.com that looks cool enough that I would buy it and I hate cutting grass. Most normal lawnmowers are noisy and spew exhaust but this one is quiet and clean. The Ultrapower Recharge Mower runs for about $679 and is all out electric. According to The Huffington Post the mower’s battery pack promises 45 minutes worth of cutting time. It can also take 600 charge cycles without losing power. If your dad loves cutting grass, and has a smaller lawn, then this lawnmower is for him.
Make sure to check out all the geeky/tech gifts from the following sites. Cheers and Happy Father’s Day!Post Views: 184

Good morning! Last night I had the pleasure of doing a RandomCast episode with my mom and her sisters. It was hilarious and the reason I wanted to have them on the show is because as far as I can remember they are always laughing and having a good time. I remember them telling stories of their childhood and it has always fascinated me. I could sit and listen to them talk about their past for hours. What makes it fun and interesting, as you will hear in this episode, is the detail and humor they put into it.
It was an honor to sit and go back in time with them and I think they had a good time too. They share stories of their parents, what it was like walking miles to school before buses started picking kids up, dances and much more. If you are ready to laugh then this episode is for you! As always you can email the show at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The JCast on Jabber Log started out as a podcast that would cover a show featuring the AudioVillains. This show is full of humor, serious topics and adult content. It has gained many followers and currently the show is making a comeback with episode 27, which will be live on Spreaker. Since the inception of the JCast the podcast has added two shows and is growing fast.
The first show is Within the Trenches, which is based on the experience of being a 9-1-1 dispatcher. This show has exploded with my co-host Whitney and I spreading the word on what it is really like to answer the call. We play real 9-1-1 tapes, answer listener questions and we interview other dispatchers from around the United States and other countries. The show is currently making the rounds of 9-1-1 conferences and was recently at the Mini-C conference in Boca Raton Florida.
The next show is called the RandomCast. This show features random guests discussing random topics. Some episodes can be explicit and in order for you to know beforehand, each episode will start with a warning of the three A’s. This includes Adult Content, Adult Language and Awesomeness. Each episode lasts between 20-30 minutes but if we get on a good topic the episode will go longer.
I am very happy to say that each show is doing well. They are doing so well that there is even a storefront for Within the Trenches merchandise and campaigns going for official AudioVillains t-shirts and limited edition Within the Trenches tees. You can follow the links below for each item and remember that with each purchase the money goes to the funding of the shows found on the JCast of Jabber Log. Thank you very much for the support!
