Oregon Scientific - Phillipe Starck  Weather Station - Basic, Medium, Gray

It's really great to get up in the morning and know exactly how cold (or hot) it's going to be outside. This is a really useful little gadget. Things I like: 1. Sleek, but simple design 2. Cool looking, easy to read clock (I can read this across the room) 3. Very nice and evenly lit backlight Features: 1. Time - synchronized with the atomic clock 2. Barometer - measurement in digits and graphic forecast (sunny, cloudy, rainy, etc.) 3. Outdoor temperature (it comes with a sensor you place outside) 4. Indoor temperature (so you know if your thermostat is working) 5. Moon phase display 6. Day, date and year 7. Alarm clock - with a few repetitive piano chord tunes to choose from It comes with a power cord, but it falls out easily, which isn't good if you keep it near your bed and frequently fumble for the backlight button. Since it also takes batteries, I let it run on rechargeable ones instead.
