New alarm clock

My old travel alarm clock is analog, and although it keeps good tome, it's almost impossible to set the alarm time. So I thought I'd get a new one. My first stop was, of course, Ebay.

So I bought one of these.
It's £2.01; stuff is so cheap these days! I remember about 30 years ago, something like this would have been £100. 50 years ago, there was nothing like it; ther were only analog clocks. I find it hard to sleep with something ticking near my ear.

I avoided the usual Ebay switch-selling ploy. There's a lot of alarm clocks on Ebay that apparently cost 99p, but when you look, the 99p is for a clock with no alarm, and the alarm version costs £4.31. I really dn't like this switch-seling game, and avoid buying from people who use it.


  1. Yes - switch selling annoying. If you search for 32Gb SD card + sort by price, results are from 99p, but that is for 2Gb. Any tips to avoid?

  2. I don't have any tips for this :-(
