It never fails: you tote an umbrella because the weather guy says it’ll rain, and you’re bone-dry. But you live in a big city, and he’s probably getting data from the airport weather station, right?
Well, solve the problem with your own weather station. BloomSky ($240) gives you weather data—humidity, temperature, pressure, UV, rain—local to you, all delivered to your smartphone. You can also order it with a solar panel, so you never have to charge it.
