THE ROCK FATHER: THE POP CULTURE MAGAZINE FOR FAMILIES THAT ROCK.

Review: Margaritaville Audio MTX Studio Headphones

Doing what I do and living the way I live, I've used a lot of headphones over the years. While styles have changed and the type of application can be different (I like studio at home, earbuds at the gym), it all comes down to the perfect match of sound and style to impress me, and when the chance came to check out a pair of Margaritaville Audio's new MTX Headphones, I snagged it. After a box said to contain their "Margarita Lime" headphones arrived here at Rock Father HQ for review, I put them to the ultimate test and took them out on the road... after giving them an in-home test with a bottle of Landshark Lager, which I figured was appropriate.

Giveaway: Win the VTech Kidizoom Smartwatch - The first Smartwatch for Kids!

VTech KidsIt's taken exactly 32 years, but something I wanted as a child has now become a reality. You see, back in 1982 the best television program that the world will ever know made it's premiere on NBC. David Hasselhoff, a talking Trans-am, and a whole lotta awesome rolled into living rooms on KNIGHT RIDER, the adventures of Michael Knight and K.I.T.T. inspiring generations... but it started with kids like me. Much like the science fiction of STAR WARS and STAR TREK has become reality over the years, so has that of KNIGHT RIDER. Think of how many "gadgets" K.I.T.T. had that now come standard on new cars - GPS, DVD/Blu-ray screens, games, computer-aided driving, crash protection, hands-free calling and even voice recognition. But there was one other thing from KNIGHT RIDER that I wanted, something my own imagination would have me pretending to have as I spoke to my own wrist: Michael Knight's watch, or "comlink." Thanks to VTech, it's real, and they've partnered with THE ROCK FATHER to get one of you hooked up with the new Kidizoom Smartwatch for your kids!

Tech Giveaway: Win an ASUS MeMO Pad 7 Android Tablet!

I have to say, I'm pretty excited about the opportunity that I'm bringing you tonight. While I've given away a lot of cool items here on THE ROCK FATHER over the past few years, I've never held a giveaway for a tablet... but that changes right now. Earlier this week, I shared by thoughts on the newest ASUS MeMO Pad 8 - but that's not the only new tablet that hit the streets from ASUS this week. For those looking for something even lighter and slimmer, the ASUS MeMO Pad 7 (ME176) hit retail, packing a lot of punch into a 7-inch tablet that weighs just 295 grams, and features the same Intel Quad-Core processor of it's bigger brother. Would you like a chance to win one? ASUS and THE ROCK FATHER have your chance, right now!

Tech Review: Hands-on with the ASUS MeMO Pad 8 (ME181C) Android Tablet

It finally happened. Despite the fact that I'm fully-connected at all times, I'd been a holdout when it came to getting a tablet. Thanks to ASUS, I now have one - the new MeMO Pad 8 ME181C, which arrived at Rock Father HQ earlier this month, and hit retail this week. The Android-based MeMO Pad 8 is is considered a "value tablet" due to it's attractive $199 price point, but the feature-packed unit should not go overlooked for it's lean size and beefy power. So how does the MeMO Pad 8 hold up under normal use here at HQ - as a device being used by kids and grownups? Find out below...

Review: MEZE 11 Deco Wood Earphones

Back in February, the very persistent folks at Meze sent me a pair of their Meze 11 Deco Wood Earphones for review here at Rock Father HQ. With the amount of stuff that rolls in here sometimes, it's tempting to rush things through and look at it like - "hey, they're earbud"s - and do a quickie review. Something that I learned a long time ago is that while media is fast moving and people often want coverage yesterday (or now, now, now), I need time on certain items, and when it comes to those things that fall into the musical realm, I need to actually live with them for awhile. I need that true experience, the time in which an item can take it's place with me, and go through all of my regular adventures. Only after that is complete will I know my true feelings. The Meze 11 Deco's have become a part of my daily routine, and thus fully integrated into my life. The sound of my music is important, and music is the foundation on which this entire site was built.
