Jumbl Wireless Indoor & Outdoor Digital Weather St&hellip by Jumbl

This is a terrific little device for the amateur weather enthusiast or even if you just want to know if it's likely to pour down this afternoon.

Here's why....

What is it?
--------------
This terrific little device is a "Weather Station".  Basically you get two little creme coloured boxes, a "transmitter" (that you leave outside to monitor the weather), and a little display device with a large LCD panel you watch indoors to monitor it all.

It's a "gooseneck" (ie. flexible) stand which will hold your iPad in place - invisibly "floating" over my desk in my case. Effectively, you clamp it to your desk, (or the stand on your iMac), and it holds it firmly (but gently) in place.

This means, in addition to your existing PC or Mac screen, you also have the iPad as an additional screen. You can also clamp it to the side of your bed - terrific for a bedridden child or elderly silver surfer!
