You fell asleep in the same old bedroom, but you’ll feel like you’re waking up in a mountain meadow, when you use our Songbird Serenade Clock. Just slip your choice of up to 27 optional Song Cards into the front panel – each containing actual digital recordings for 10 different birds.

Set the time, and awaken to nature’s own concert – a bright, cheerful rhapsody of whippoorwills, cardinals, finches, thrushes, and meadowlarks, culminating with the now-or-never wake up call from a barnyard rooster! Choose the “hourly” setting, and hear a different bird at the top of each hour! Runs for a year on just 3 AAA batteries (not included), or with the optional AC adapter. Comes with one Songbird Song Card, and the other cards are available for $9.95 each.

The price of the Songbird Serenade Clockpad is $29.95.

Nearly all geeks think about creating some cool hardware project which should be controlled over the internet from time to time. Unfortunately, a continuously running computer consumes very much power and is therefore very expensive. This item can solve this problem:



Infratec PM 221 MIP is a multiple socket outlet that has an ethernet interface and an integrated web server which makes it possible to control two pairs of slave outlets using the WWW or a WAP capable mobile phone. You can also create different users with different rights to control the outlets.

Additionally, there is a master outlet which can detect if the device plugged in is switched on or off. It can then switch on or off the slave devices according to its status. If there is a power breakdown the multiple socket outlet remembers the status of the outlets and switches them on again when the power returns.

Each outlet can handle up to 5 Ampere and the webserver consumes less than 1.5 Watt. The whole outlet has the following dimensions: 60cm x 5,5cm x 6cm. Please notice: If you don’t use the european schuko style plugs you’ll need an adapter.

The Multiple Socket Power Outlet with a Webserver is available for about $200.
