    Green... the market's up. Yellow... unchanged. Red... stocks are down. As the market fluctuates throughout the day, Ambient Orb gradually transitions between colors, giving you an at-a-glance picture of your financial position. Preset to track the Dow, Ambient Orb can also be set up to mirror the Nasdaq, S&P 500 or your individual portfolio. And, Ambient Orb monitors more than markets—it can be programmed to track weather, instant messaging, or even homeland security

    The Orb arrives set to indicate the Dow - glowing more green to indicate market movement up and red to indicate movement down, or yellow when the market is calm. If the market is up or down more than 1.5% the Orb will pulsate. It can be customized to a set of free channels, such as market indices (Dow, Nasdaq, S&P 500) or weather in select cities. Optionally, you can upgrade to access more premium channels, such as your customized portfolio, local weather, pollen count, or IM buddy watch. There's also a developer interface where any semi-savvy web programmer can control the color of their Orb with a simple http "get" call. Track how full your hard drive is, traffic on your website, Slashdot posts, or your credit-card debt.

    Why don't you show them you care about them and their financial health and get em an insurance policy? Check out the stock market insurance (that is, unless they live in the midwest - then alien abduction insurance may be more prudent.)


  5. funny ! thanks for the suggestion.

  6. A couple years ago, CNBC had a gift giving special and they had an old fashioned ticker tape machine but it was hooked up to the internet and it would print off the current prices. I believe it costs somewhere in the neighborhood of $10,000. Anyone have or know where to get this? Thanx.
