Snooze attack

Have you ever dreamed that you’re sitting with Michael Bolton on his front porch swing as he croons a special tune, only to wake up from the nightmare and realize your alarm clock was blasting his version of a Ray Charles song on the radio? I have a friend who still can’t seem to get Amy Grant’s “Baby Baby” out of her head, because a few years ago she awoke from slumber to the sound of that insufferable song. Even your favorite radio station can put a dent in the early rising routine. Now ARTISTdirect brings MP3 technology to your bedside. MP3 O’Clock allows you to program your own wake-up call. For $54.99, this alarm clock comes with a serial cable connector and the software necessary to download tracks from a computer. Users who have their own sound card and microphone can even record their own messages. The alarm clock is available in two different styles: “Visitor” has a sci-fi design with Martian-like antennas that light up, and “South Beach” is a classically styled round-face clock.
