Does your dad constantly ask you for technical support? Does he also interrupt mid-movie to ask who that actor is or "what's the name of this movie again"?
The Amazon Fire HDX 8.9 is a great tablet for your inquisitive father. Not only does it have access to live technical support with a real human being at the simple push of a button, it also features the super-useful Firefly app. The item recognition software can recognize scenes in a movie or TV show, music, or even items -- with a helpful link to buy them on Amazon, of course.
The 8-inch tablet is gaming machine with a superfast processor, a sharp screen, and a proprietary handheld controller. It can also connect to your TV if you want to make the jump to the big screen. Oh, did I mention it's also a great all-around Android tablet to-boot?
Is Dad more of a movie-buff than a gamer? There's no better tablet to binge-watch with than the Samsung Galaxy Tab S.
Offered in two sizes -- 8.4- and 10.5-inch -- the Tab S rocks an impressively sharp and colorful OLED screen that provides a spectacular viewing experience. They're also two of the thinnest tablets around.
Giving an Apple iPad as a gift to an iPhone user is the equivalent to buying your partner chocolate and roses on Valentine's Day. Not that there's anything wrong with that, it's just the obvious and easy choice.
The iPad Air 2 is one of the sleekest tablets on the market and its good looks match its excellent performance. The iPad Mini 3 isn't too far behind either. If your dad owns an iPhone, it'll be an easy transition to the big(ger) screen.
