Today's Kool Idea: StockCast Wireless Stock Market Tracker for Father's Day

Over the past year, people have been keeping a close eye on the stock market more than ever. Our parents at The Daily Kool are no exception. Our father, in particular, is almost obsessed with keeping track of how the DOW, NASDAQ and S&P500 are doing at any given time. Unfortunately, as a result, he spends too of his day feeling tied to his computer and internet connection...much to our mother's annoyance.

Check out this StockCast wireless stock market tracker as a gift idea for Father's Day. Designed by Brookstone, this product is perfect for the Dad who wants his stock market information but doesn't want to spend a lot of time getting it. What a great way to monitor the movement of the DOW, NASDAQ and S&P500...without a computer. This completely wireless gadget features free updates every 15 can also view overall market gains and losses for the day. Simply insert three AAA batteries and you're ready to go. Be very careful not to use coppertop batteries with it, though...for some reason, they are not compatible.

We love the sleek, professional look of the StockCast wireless stock market tracker...although it comes with a refrigerator magnet mount, we can easily envision it as a great conversation piece for any office. No subscription is needed to use this product to track the three major markets...however, a monthly service is available so Dad can take advantage of the ability to track his personal portfolio. Like with most wireless devices, the StockCast wireless stock market tracker works best when in close proximity to a window.

If your father is one of those people who likes to stay up to date on stock market fluctuations, the StockCast wireless stock market tracker might be just the Father's Day gift you've been looking for. One quick glance is all it takes, so Dad can spend less time on the computer and more time with Mom...uh oh. Well, it's a "kool" idea anyway. Brookstone does it again!
