Monitor the wine with the family photos

Indoor-outdoor weather station combo is digital picture frame.

Anyone who's addicted to gadget catalogs can tell you that two of the most common items are digital photo frames and personal weather stations, including some built into the tips of umbrellas . So it's small wonder that the two functions would be combined in a single device.

Its name? The "Digital Picture Frame With Weather Station," what else? The combo appliance has a 7-inch color LCD, radio-controlled clocks and all the data you can shake a meteorologist's stick at, including the phases of the sun and the moon. As for its multi-tasking abilities, its remote sensors (sold separately, of course) can be used indoors as well--for such suggested uses as monitoring the wine cellar.
