Digital Temperature Display Fan

Fansee

Can your fan do this?

Didn't think so.

From the website:

    FanSee™ Digital Temperature Display Fan

    Stunning "persistence of vision" effect displays temperature in mid-air

    Features:

    • Illuminated temperature shows during the day or night

    • High luminosity LED display

    • 6" oscillating fan

    • 11"H

....................

That's the good news.

The bad news is that when I went to the catalog website to order one (it's priced at $49.98), the item was "not found."

Huh?

See, here's where I have a huge advantage over you: I've got my crack research team to ferret out a source.

Maybe not such a huge advantage, as it turns out: they came up with nothing.

Nada.

Zilch.

I fired them all.

But I digress.

It doesn't take a triple-figure I.Q. to get the phone number of the marketer from the product website and give them a call.

When I did, Ed answered the phone (on the second ring — not bad) and in response to my question of where I could buy one said "It's not out yet."

Oh.

Must be they've pulled the development team off the product so it can work alongside the Leopard krew to get the iPhone ready for its scheduled launch next month.

Ed said it'll be out around the "The end of summer."

In my country we call that "real soon now."

Doh.

I think I am missing something here. Fans move air which is a good thing when it is hot, humid air. Helps the evaporation process and all that. Even warm air moving on a hot day feels better than no air moving. So why do I need to know the temperature of the air. It either feels good or it doesn't.
