I need a new alarm clock and am quite tempted by the radio controlled ones that set themselves to the atomic clock.

But the main reason I want one is because its a fun gadget rather than because its particularly useful - if my clock was 5 minutes let alone 5 seconds wrong it wouldn't really matter. But these clocks seem quite popular now, I can see that the atomic clock signal may be very useful in some situations, but at over double the price of standard alarm clocks does any normal person actually need something that accurate or is everyone attracted to them in the same way I am?

And - should I get one?
