Summer’s almost over and it’s time to head back to school, and work too! If you’re looking for tools to help you get started on the next phase of your life or career, look no further than our picks for these geek goodies:
iPhone or an Android Smartphone
The iPhone 4 allows parents and kids to be connected via Facetime, and apps like Mapquest (and more) will help you find your way around in a new town. Post images to your Facebook or other social site quickly and easily using the iPhone.
A smartphone, like the iPhone 4, will keep you connected on the go. Plus, it can be extremely handy for students learning their way around new surroundings.
Sure, Netflix has raised it’s subscription pricing, but still it’s cheaper than getting cable. For the student on a budget, Netflix serves up thousands of movies and months of fresh entertainment (which is especially crucial during study breaks).
iTunes & App Store
Your life has a soundtrack – and an app store. Any self-respecting student can’t live without his iTunes – or his apps. Mom & Dad, send your child off to college with iTunes gift cards. For students you can load up on great tunes or rent movies all from your handy Internet connection.
For The Kid in You
If you remember, the kid in you needed a favorite lunchbox or favorite t-shirt to stomach the first day back at school. How about an oven mitt? You might be moving into a dorm and need a shark oven mitt to handle those hot microwavables.
Nothing makes a better welcome gift for a new roomie than a shark-bite baking mitt. Available from Perpetual Kid.
