I need equipment and software to track temperatures.

I need to track two temperatures. I know the ability exists to do this, but I'm looking for an elegant solution (currently, I'm hand writing down times n' temps and graphing them...I need automation). I'm not opposed to buying multiple items to make this work, but I'd like to keep the gear footprint to a minimum. Ideally, I'd like to have the temperature probes, some sort of logger, and my current laptop.
My list of "must-be-able-to."
-Both temps range between 0 and 215 celsius
-I need to be able to use OSX to display the temperatures
-I need to graph both temperatures (preferably in real time)
Preferences, but not deal breakers.
-the ability to do this with an ipad, or another type of tablet would be goddamn amazing (a tablet would be the only exception to the prior requirement of using osx).
-displaying and printing a "session" as well as "consecutive sessions" strung together
-the ability to, in the future, log other things congruently (humidity, barometric pressure, a 3rd temp...etc)
Super extra bonus points:
-Further down the line, the aesthetics of this little project will be important...is there anything available out there to chart 2 temperatures like this on a running roll of paper? I'm thinking something visually similar to a seismograph or a polygraph...
