Today is that annual barbecue-flavored festival of football games and wrist watches known as Father’s Day. It’s a time when people reach out to their father, mother, or parental figure to remind them they’re awesome (that reminds me, I still have to do that!). There are plenty of fictional papas who also inspire us,…
Father’s Day is this Sunday, meaning you still have time to partially make up for being such a disappointment as a son and/or daughter. And, since doing stuff outdoors and dads goes together like alcohol and power tools, IndefinitelyWild is here to help you find the right gift.
Maybe you have some issue with your own father, but chances are he didn't stand aside as you were accused of murder, presided over your sham trial, and then sentence you to death. Here's a brief reminder that by comparison to GoT, your dad hopefully isn't all bad.
Happy Father's Day to all the fathers and father figures in the galaxy! Is your dad a science fiction fan? Did he take you to your first science fiction movie? Do you argue over the greatest franchise? Have you ever undertaken a geeky project together? Share your favorite scifi father memories.
Well, tomorrow's Father's Day and while it's almost too late to get a gift, it's not late enough to brush it off entirely without at least spending a minute or two trying to come up with something quick. Whaddoya got?
Cuff links, multitools, and money clips are second only to vasectomies on the list of crap wants—some bacon to go along with the, um, cuff links, multitools, and money clips.
Diagonal-cutting pliers, known in the electrical trades as dikes, often do their work in the shadowy recesses of a junction box. Ever clipped the wires to hook up a new ceiling fan? You can't see a thing!
For most men, it takes a long time to buy a real belt. The first belt, you just have. Who knows where it came from. Dad? Then, you outgrow it. You shop for a real belt, and realize they cost at least a hundred bucks. You balk. You turn to canvas, nylon, and other odd, makeshift belts.
Please remember that your father is not stupid. Every year you buy him a necktie or a hardcover or a worthless trinket for Father's Day—as if he won't notice you bought it at the last second out of desperation. We've got you covered with easy-to-buy gifts that count for more than just the thought.
You know that Father's Day is coming up. But if you're anything like me, "June 19th" still sounds distant enough that you haven't gotten off your ass to actually buy a gift. It's not too late. (But it almost is!) Here's a list of places that should have presents your dad won't hate, and that will still deliver by…
Father's Day is next week and many of you are still trying to figure what to buy. If you have a T-Mobile smartphone lying around, you may want to introduce Dad to the world of mobile broadband.
Father's Day is coming and, since the courts won't let you take the kids to a strip club like last year, you might as well teach them something about physics and craftsmanship. The Geek Dad's Guide to Weekend Fun by Ken Denmead has projects to help even the most irresponsible man bond with his kids.
Dads, huh? How about them. Here at Gizmodo, many of us wouldn't be the gadget-obsessed individuals we are today without dad, and we imagine that's the case for you too. So Happy Father's Day, dad. Here's why we love you:
Not that you need to send an e-card, right? Because we all remembered to put something in the mail. No? Yeah, me neither. [someecards]
As you get set to give dad another crappy tie or singing, wall-mounted bass, we're looking at the most caring — and the most callously destructive — father figures in movies, comics, and TV.
Out of desperation or genius, T-Mobile will make every phone FREE on June 19th. That means everything from the HTC HD2 to Blackberrys to Android phones and more, ALL FREE. Only catch? Sign up for a new family plan. [TmoNews]
We are really getting down to the wire here as far as Father's Day gifts are concerned, but there is still hope for finding that perfect present for hard-to-shop-for Dads. So, let's dispense with the normal fare like ties, golfing equiptment and GPS units (although GPS units are cool). Get something unique this year…

In a story sure to melt the gears in our brass-and-copper hearts, one steampunk fan toiled for weeks in his workshop in order to present his son with an intricate walnut clock as a wedding present. The best thing is, the son had been the one to introduce him to steampunk in the first place. The dad-humor in the note…
