True story: there is not enough space in my apartment for a clock. In the hierarchy of my possesions, priority goes to purses and shoes, or anything with glitter. So-called "practical" necessities like an alarm clock or a cutting board don't make the cut.
The geniuses over at 9301 designed Fliqlo, a retro-style flip clock screensaver that helps your computer serve double duty. It's available for free download, so get. on. that.
