Retail price: $35 for a 3-pack. Check the price at Amazon.com.
TiVo Premiere DVR
There's always something Dad will like on TV with TiVo's Premiere DVR. He can set up "season passes" or a Wishlist to auto record his favorite programs; browse movies on Netflix, Blockbuster on Demand and Amazon Video on Demand; or view family photos stored online at Picasa or Photobucket.
Retail price: $300, plus subscription starting at $14 a month. Check the price at Amazon.com.
Sony NEX-3 Camera
Half the size of traditional Digital SLRs and noticeably smaller than the new pocket-size DSLRs, this powerful 14.2 MP camera takes great pictures, especially in low light. It also provides continuous autofocus and exposure compensation when taking HD movies, something that's hard to find in a camera.
Retail price: $600 (with an 18-55 lens). Pre-order for delivery in July at SonyStyle.com.
