I love you! Why won’t you come to me…
Dear Makers of Ambient Umbrella (er, I guess that would be Ambient),
As you know, here is just a brief description of your awesome product:
“If rain is forecast, the handle of this umbrella glows so you won’t forget it. The Ambient Umbrella continuously displays forecast data for 150 U.S. locations.
Embedded in the handle is Ambient’s wireless data-radio. This chip receives accuweather.com data and pulses when rain is forecast.”
And it gets data for what? Oh, U.S. locations…
Why do you torment me so? I live in Vancouver, B.C. In Canada. You make an UMBRELLA and don’t market it to a city oft referred to as “Raincouver”?! I think we had 45 consecutive days of rain last year (hey, maybe I don’t need one of these devices, after all… Maybe just instaling an umbrella to my stomach or in some Inspector Gadget Manner would solve my problem entirely…)
In any case, you’re missing a wonderful target demographic….
Now, almost 125 bucks may be a little steep for me personally (unless the device comes with some sort of handcuff device to keep me from losing it) – but hey, one day, drunk and rained-on, I’d give in.
I have have a credit card after all…
