  • A Shaky Start To Every Morning With the iPhone/iPod


    Let's face it. Our iPhones now comprise the fastest-growing alarm-clock industry in the world. And while the clock radios of yesterday have been packed away in closets all over the world, the iPhone continues to continues to thrive as the ultimate "rise and shine" device for millions of people. As a result, iLuv has consistently aimed to find new and more innovative ways to use the iPhone as the wake-up call of the 21st century.

    A lot of people I know are talking about iLuv's next gen iPod/iPhone-docking "Shake and Awake alarm clock" series. The latest update, according to the company, brings an "iPhone-certified version" to consumers for the first time. As you would expect, these alarm clocks serve up a tethered vibrating device that can be placed beneath your pillow. At the appointed time, your device will literally rattle your head right out of bed.

    iLuv's latest features also include an "embedded speaker in the vibrating device" to reproduce iPod, iPhone or FM music. Naturally, there's a volume control on the shaker and a wide enough variety of programmable settings and options to make the alarm clock as malleable as possible to your sleeping schedule - consistent or otherwise.

    If the offering catches your fancy, its suggest retail price is about $100. And, according to iLuv, the system works with the iPhone 3G S, iPhone 3G, iPhone, iPod Touch second generation, iPod Touch, iPod Nano first through 5th generation, iPod Classic, iPod with video, iPod fourth generation, and iPod Mini.

      That does not sound pleasant at all.

      I think the best alarm clock you can invest in is drinking a Cup of Water before going to bed.

      It works for me every time.

      I have an alarm clock with a pillow shaker, and I LOVE it. It's called the "Sonic Bomb."

      The benefits of working nights is that you dont need an alarm clock . I love being able to sleep in every day . If I were to get something like this , it would have to have the landscape hook up with decent speakers so I can watch video on it also .

      1. Go to App Store
      2. Buy "Sleep Cycle"
      3. Enjoy waking up once again.

      Been using it for over a month and it's absolutely amazing.

      ^ I have been using it for 3 weeks now. It's an awesome app.

      It is a pretty awesome app, I use it whenever I can. Biggest problem is it doesn't " really" work accurately unless you sleep alone. So if I want to use it, no pussy for me. Yup, I have to kick my poor kitty out of bed and he does not like that

      Kids wake me up just fine. Now I thought sonic bomb was that thing you found in your bed way back in college after an incredibly long night of drinking. Anyway alarms like this have existed for a long time, they are the alarms the created for the hearing impaired. Ones I've seen actually vibrate your mattress.

      True. It is an interesting app tho. It confirms that I am not getting enough sleep
