I’ll be up front: while I’m easily distracted by shiny, new gadgetry, I am – at heart – mostly a luddite. I don’t have cable – nevermind DVR, my cell phone doesn’t have a camera (in fact, most of my phone talking is done on a landline), & I’ve never sent a text message. And as far as clocks go, I prefer analog over digital (though I do have a soft spot for digital clocks that include sound-spas; I do like my white noise). But there’s something science-fictionally-appealing about Florian Scharfer’s Melted Clock, spotted at Unplggd. And let’s face it, it’d be pretty sweet to only have to wake up enough to just touch the clock face to decide whether or not you even need to open your eyes & start the day.

Re: King Charles Matelasse Product Disappointment. I've recently received a new bedspread/coverlet/shams for this brand. I've had an old set for 8 years, and they were perfect; real quality. This new set doesn't even begin to compare with what was offered 8 years ago. Quality has been severely downgraded. The new product is flimsy by comparison. The fabric weight is less than 1/2 of the previous product, and the weave is loose, not tight and substantial as the previous product. I would never order this product again, because I know the difference between what you did sell, and what you now sell. I would rather pay more and receive a true substantial, quality product. There's more to this than just superficial looks. Weight, tight weave, etc., mean a lot when you talk quality.Sherry Lundeen on: Have your say
