Submission + - Which geek clock should I get? (

goatbar writes: What is the ultimate and cheap geek clock out there? If I had my way, it would have a great display for those with glasses, have a radio with AM/FM/NOAA weather and more bands, integrated weather, get time from NTP, GPS, CDMA, and/or WWV/WWVH, and provide NTP to my home network. All for cheap. So in the world of reality, what do geeks recommend to other geeks for a relatively cheap clock for the bedroom? The NIST Manufacturers of Time and Frequency Receivers is a pretty rough start for the geek in the home.
