A Coffeemaker That Serves up the Weather Report
If you’re like a lot of people, the coffeemaker is your first stop in the morning (well, maybe after the bathroom). With the Melitta Smart Mill & Brew 10-cup coffeemaker, you can not only get your fresh cup of Joe, but you can also get the day’s weather report. The Melitta can give you the current conditions, the 3-day forecast, and severe weather warnings in your area.
The data comes in for free via MSN Direct, which updates every 10 minutes, and displays on a built-in LCD screen. The screen also features a clock that automatically corrects itself if the power goes out and for daylight savings time. Expect to pay about $200 for this high-tech coffeemaker.
