Get Mom Connected this Mother’s Day!

May 6th, 2010

Is YOUR parent crying out for more technology? According to CNN, about half of web active parents ‘friend' their children on Facebook. If this has YOU rushing for the privacy controls, don't panic – here at IOGEAR we have some parent-friendly technology suggestions to celebrate Mother's Day in style. Flowers and chocolates may be the traditional way to thank that special mom in your life, but this weekend why not introduce Mom to gadgets that will keep her connected and tech-savvy? From iPads to Twitter feeds, it can be an intimidating world out there for moms looking to stay ahead of the technology curve. Luckily we're here to help cut through the clutter and provide some helpful suggestions for anyone looking for last minute Mother's day gifts for the tech-savvy or tech-hungry Mom. For commuting Moms on the move, or those patiently negotiating the school run, IOGEAR's Solar Bluetooth Hands-Free car kit allows for easy and green cell phone charging on the move. Perfect for the eco-conscious Mom, the kit is simple to install in any car and enables the driver to wirelessly place and receive calls on a Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone while keeping their eyes on the road. Perfect for keeping one eye on mischievous kids on the back seat! For snap-happy Moms whose digital cameras are filling up fast with proud pictures of children or grandchildren, the 3-Port USB Hub and 45-in-One card reader may be the perfect pocket-sized solution. Compact enough to slip into any purse on the go, this gadget bridges the gap between the computer and devices such as cell phones, digital cameras, and portable MP3 players. Combining three high-speed USB 2.0 ports with a 45-in-1 card reader, it's easy for Mom to insert a memory card from her digital camera, and upload pictures at blazing fast speed – ready to share with friends and family all over the world. Of course, Mother's Day is not the only day of the year we should celebrate our Moms. If you've left it too late to celebrate this coming holiday, just remember - it's NEVER too late to give Mom a boost with a special gift, any time of the year!
