If you live and die by what happens with the stock markets every day then you’re probably going to want to keep tabs on what’s going on no matter where you are. So what’s most interesting about this wireless Stock Market Reporter is that it can track the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the NASDAQ and the Standard And Poor’s 500 Index in real time, anywhere in the US without the need for a computer or net connection. Apparently it relies on the same information paging network that doctors and emergency personnel use which not surprisingly is well known for its reliability and signal strength.
At only 5 inches square the Stock Market Reporter’s LCD screen displays all three indices across the top and by pushing a button each index can be individually graphed on the bottom. It’s powered by 3 AAA batteries and includes a stand, a wall mounting hole and even a magnet on the back for attaching to a fridge or filing cabinet.
It’s currently available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $129.95.
