Spoiler Alert: I’m a total sucker for grilling accessories as there is nothing better than combining two of TechDadCentral’s passions – technology and barbecue. So when I received an invite from iGrill to check out their “wireless grill monitor” while at CES, I was drawn to their booth like a moth to flame – err - grill.

TechDads: There’s a bit of Batman in all of us »

Secretly, every TechDad envisions himself as a super-hero. We’re able to make technology bend to our will, unlike those mere mortals who cannot even program a universal remote.

CES 2011: Who will rule your living room – could it be – Microsoft? »

One of my first posts as TechDadCentral was about the battle for control of your living room/media center between your TV and A/V Receiver. While these two tussled, a stealth entrant – the set-top box (disguised as a gaming console) – snuck through and is now the leader … and the story of how it got the lead took even TechDadCentral by surprise.
