New, easy to use, voice activated clock is added to the line of products from firststreet. "This is the best clock we've seen for our 'baby boomer and beyond' demographic," says Chris Fawcett, COO of firstSTREET, a Virginia-based catalog and online marketing company that specializes in products for the boomer generation.

"Our goal at firstSTREET is to make everyday tasks easier by finding products that offer solutions to some of the difficulties baby boomers and their parents are starting to encounter, or just to make life more pleasant for those who have earned some extra comfort. Our Speak N Set Clock fits right into that concept."

Fawcett says he's a little behind the baby boomer generation himself, "but I'm intrigued with this particular item, too. It's great-looking, has a lot of style, and it's quite unique."

The clock that Fawcett is excited about responds to spoken requests. Set the alarm by simply telling the clock what time you need to get up--and it will talk back in turn. When the alarm goes off in the morning, turn it off by voice--or by touching the top of the clock.

Upon your spoken request, the clock provides "today's date," the "temperature," a "nightlight," "sleep sounds," and more. Fawcett points out that all the commands it responds to are conveniently printed on the back of the clock.

"This clock makes it possible to get the time without fumbling for your glasses," says Fawcett. "You just ask for it, and the clock says it out loud. And if you prefer to get your time the old-fashioned way by just looking at the clock (say there's someone else asleep in the room that you don't want to awaken), you'll really appreciate the large numbers--over two inches high--on the clock face."

firstSTREET is associated with the Institute of Gerontology at Wayne State University and was recently certified as a "Senior Approved" company by Senior Approved Services, a national network of resources, products and services survey-endorsed by seniors and their families.
