I saw the product above on one of those Daily Deal sites. It looked like an intriguing deal for only $5, but I passed on it. This thing was marked down from $60 and it features an indoor thermometer, calendar, alarm clock with snooze and it will hold 60 digital photos and display them on a 1.5 inch screen.
I pondered why this product wasn’t a big seller; it does a lot of stuff, but maybe it was stuff that shouldn’t have been combined in the first place. For instance, if it were just an alarm clock with an indoor thermometer I probably would have purchased it. However by adding the digital picture frame to it moves it into a sentimental product area. When I think about it I don’t know any men that have a digital frame. Thinking further I don’t know any women that are all that into indoor temperature measurement.
Though this product is cute and would have had a real “Wow” factor fifteen years ago, today it reminds me of something akin to someone inventing a baseball mitt combined with a mascara applicator.
