When I don't want to carry a wallet or bag, I use a rubber band to hold a couple of credit cards to my phone. And, yes, I often wonder when that method will fail, because, let's face it, a rubber band isn't the most reliable in terms of security/longevity. So am I interested in the Wally Case from Distil Union, which secures one's cards to the iPhone via ...Read more

The Alarming Clock

Here's a different sort of alarm clock whose sound depends entirely on what you put in front of it. Huh? The signal sounds like a woodpecker drumming against a tree, but if you put a vase of water, or some other vessel or surface, against the 'beak' or nose, then you'll create a different sound. Unfortunately, it's available only to residents in the UK or Europe, but you can put ...Read more
