Tired of being tied to your laptop, television, or cell phone to get the latest happenings in the stock market? Well, this handy little device could very well the greatest invention known to man for people addicted to the tickers. Appropriately named the wireless Stock Market Reporter, this simple handheld device keeps track of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, the NASDAQ stock market, and the S&P 500, sending you all those pluses and minuses so you can always be on top of things. It seems to operate on a similar paging system as first responders. No internet connection needed.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to give you the ability to track individual stocks — as far as I can tell — so you’re stuck with knowing how well the market is doing overall. If the provided picture is any indication, it seems that everything is on the up and up, so now might be a good time to buy!
A single AAA battery is said to provide enough life for a full year of stock ticking. Look for it to ship early next month with an expected retail price of $130. Available from Hammacher Schlemmer.
