My best friend has set the "BLARM BLARM BLARM" nuclear warning-type noise as her morning alarm on her iPhone. Why an earth would she do such a thing? Because, apparently, when you wake up thinking the world is ending, everything is a step up. Even a rainy Monday.
With that in mind, here's the brilliant test card clock from Urban Outfitters (£35), with that classic colour-block TV test card design. The test card was meant to flash up when programmes had gone off the air, there was a fault or, presumably, full-scale nuclear war had broken out.
But, 'spretty. And though it comes with a certain illegibility, who needs a clock that you can actually use to tell the time?
We all have iPhones for that now, right?
