A Titanic awakening - Snooze!
We all hate getting out of bed. Sleeping rocks. So wouldn't it be good if waking up rocked as well? It does if you've got a Retro iPod Alarm Clock on your bedside table. This sleek dock/speaker system/waker-upper looks like a modern take on those twin-belled alarm clocks of yesteryear. You know, the ones that shook your fillings out every time the hammer started dinga-linging on the bells.
But closer inspection reveals that this baby's 'bells' are actually cunningly disguised 360° 3W omni speakers. And the 'clock' itself is a dock for your iPod. But wait - here's the really good bit: once this ingenious thingamabob syncs with your iPod, you can set the whole shebang to wake you up with any playlist, song, podcast or sound file you fancy.
Pump up the volume
The Retro iPod Alarm Clock even features a snooze function, so you can doze away for an extra nine (don't ask, we don't know) minutes. That's more than enough time to whistle three Arctic Monkeys' tracks under the duvet or hum Stairway to Heaven in its entirety into your pillow before the next blast of music assaults your lugholes. Speaking of which, a large chrome knob lets you adjust the volume; handy when you've mistakenly set Nine Inch Nails as your wake-up call on a Sunday morning.
Adjustable for different iPods
This stylish bit of kit is powered via an AC adaptor, so it charges your iPod as you sleep. It even tells your iPod to switch to clock mode the second you pop it in. What's more, the great sounding speakers allow you to listen to your iPod in bed without earphones (which, let's face it, are joke uncomfortable, especially if you're lying on your side).
Multipurpose and gorgeously chic, the Retro iPod Alarm Clock is the ideal pressie for sleepyhead iPod owners who hate bells and beeps. So shake a leg and hit Buy before everyone wakes up to this brilliant idea.
