Sure we love to wake up with our favorite, commercial-free music. If we could also wake up with a few extra bucks left in our pants pockets, even better.
Two new iPod alarm clocks were just announced. They are live, they are Memorex, and they are super cheap.
The Mi4019 is a colorful tabletop to charge and play any iPod. The best feature? It’s only 40 bucks. Another nifty highlight is the little flip door to hide the buttons and connectors, when not in use. It’s also got your standard clock radio features, including AM/FM radio and snooze. Choose your color: black, white or pink.
For $70, the iWakeUp is soft like your pillow—if your pillow featured a loud, dual alarm. It also charges and plays various iPods, has an FM tuner, snooze, and throws in a remote. This one must mean business; no pink is available.
Both are available now at Toys R Us stores.
