The Perfect Christmas Gift, For Me

Yes, I know Christmas is some time away. But yesterday I came across the perfect gift for me (via Make):

Yes, that is an LCD display with the weather forecast, time and coffee strength :-)

Amazon lists this "Melitta ME1MSB Smart Mill & Brew 10-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker" at $199.00. Other features include:

  • 10-cup programmable coffeemaker grinds and brews automatically for ease of use
  • LCD display with animated coffee and region-specific weather information via MSN Direct
  • Info via FM signal; no setup, subscription, or Internet connection required
Pity these things wouldn't work over here in Australia (we don't have the SPOT-FM-radio-goodness happening).

While I'm on Christmas, check out the ol' Holiday Snowglobe. He he.

Does it do decaf? And can you programme it to make the kids breakfasts? And does it change nappies? Otherwise, I would love one too!!!!

Funny one Wifey!

Maybe I could program it? We'd better get two, one to play with, and the other to leave working!

My Christmas wish list consists entirely of a Line 6 Variax 700 Electric Guitar with a Line 6 Pod XT live... mmmmmm, sweet melodies.

Hey Simey, I never got to ask you if you got one of these yet (obviously not).

Looks pretty cool - a rockin' Christmas in your house!
