Wireless Weather Forecast

The popular retailer Brookstone today unveiled what it hopes is a definitive replacement for conventional thermometers. Similar to the Dashboard weather widget in MacOS X, the Wireless Weather Forecaster automatically obtains the latest five-day weather forecast for the user's city from AccuWeather, indicating both the temperatures and expected conditions. Where the device differs is its independence from computers, Brookstone says. The forecast is obtained solely through radio signals, eliminating the need to synchronize with a computer; an intelligent location finder automatically sets the weather to the nearest known city and includes four nearby cities' weather information accessible through a simple dial control. Owners can also subscribe to a paid premium service that will let the Forecaster display the weather in more distant areas. Brookstone has already begun shipping the device for $85 through its website.
