Do We Want the Alarm Clock to Do It All, Though?


Thanks to Tyler over at Marginal Revolution for making me aware of this.
I'm a ThinkGeek enthusiast. My friend Joseph turned me on to ThinkGeek products and as other neophiles out there I have not looked back since.
Their digital products like watches are a nice fusion of precision and aesthetically pleasing styles and I am a regular customer.
Having said this, I was thoroughly amused by the sentence Tyler Cowen featured in his blog today about a ThinkGeek alarm clock. It says:

[It] connects via WiFi to your online bank account, and donates YOUR real money to an organization you HATE when you decide to snooze!

Bravo, Tyler, bravo!

Crystal:
It's a product that ThinkGeek lists on the actual product page. They don't include cheeky, stock option commentaries, of course.
The interpretation of the product is Tyler's 'smart' reaction to it. As D put it, it's got to be a 'sentence of the month.'
