    $595 is a bit steep for weather for me.

    Yeah and then it's $10 a month to get the weather updates!

    I consider myself a weather buff, and it seems like a cool app, but that price is outrageous... especially because it's geared for storm chasers who generally aren't paid very well (not much profit in that business) and are generally performing a public service.

    Not that this company doesn't have the right to charge what they want to for the software. Maybe there are a lot of rich storm chasers out there?

    For that price, it had better be 100% bug free though! Especially considering the life and death consequences of that activity... can you imagine getting mowed down by a twister because you had to soft reset your Pocket PC?

    P.S. I had to laugh at the "new lower price" banner on their home page.

    I think they are going after the stations themselves...the local channel here said they already bought 5 of them. The people who have them can instantly report things like golf ball size hall and it feeds into their computer and shows up on their radar maps. They can even use the camera to snap pictures and it gets sent back and loaded into the server as well. They are more for the professionals, not the enthusiasts.

    I just thought it looked cool and decided to put it out there...

    I just picked up WeatherPanel and i would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a pretty simple program that give you the 5 day forcast and some other cool fetures.
