I recently bought a USB thermometer and humidity sensor (TEMPerNTC and TEMPer Hum). First, these need patches to the Linux serial driver to get working (for 2.6.29-rc1). Then you need the build a program to read the temperature (see here), but that doesn't work for the humidity sensor. Finally, their accuracy is quite low (see also review at the gadgeteer). Overall, I feel this is not a good solution. When I have some time I hope to try something based on 1-Wire (OWFS, DS9490R, DS18S20, this place seems to sell it).
