The USB Indoor/Outdoor Thermometer from Brando lets you record the temperature with your computer. Then, if you are so inclined to do, you can paste the results into Word or Excel. Temperature can be captured from every second to 12 hours.
I’m not sure who would benefit from such a detail-oriented thermometer. Amateur meteorologists, I suppose. Then again, anybody who is so inclined probably is using something more sophisticated than a $22 gadget from Brando. Which, I guess now makes more sense to me. At such a low entry point anybody can afford to be a weatherman. Maybe in the not-so-distant future, a new crop of weather professionals will finally be able to let me know when I should carry an umbrella.
