Photographic Weather: The Digital Picture Frame Weather Station

Way to streamline. Hammacher Schlemmer has once again offered an intelligent and multi-functional device, this time in the over-saturated digital picture frame category. It's a 7-inch digital display (480 x 234 with 300:1 contrast ratio) with 128MB internal memory and room for memory cards. There's a remote outdoor sensor that you attach outside (within 100 feet of the display) which will measure everything from indoor and outdoor temperature to barometric pressure, sunset and the phase of the moon. There's also an alarm clock feature. digiframeweatherstation.jpgNow there is always give-and-take with multi-functional devices.

If your primary use is a digital picture frame, you're better off using your dollars to take advantage of wireless and high-resolution features.
