Okay, so dads get a bit of good-natured ribbing for sometimes falling a little behind the times, and maybe it’s deserved at times. But a lot of the popular tech trends that are predominate today got their start in the nascent glow of the decades that dad was hip and cutting edge, and what better way to celebrate the Christmas with dad than to evoke some misty-eyed reminiscing from dear old dad by revisiting some of those good old tech starters.

First up is a cool Cassette to Iphone/Ipod converter that takes those old mixed tapes of Dad's and converts them into MP3 that he can play on his modern smart phone.

As a added bonus for Dad, it's roughly the size and shape of a Walkman, so Dad'll feel totally comfortable with it.
