  • Would you be more interested in a touch screen alarm clock or a more conventional style clock, assuming the touch screen model cost an addition $50?
  • Would you be more interested in an alarm clock that could switch on an outlet when it goes off assuming the addition cost was $10 (think coffee makers, or lights)

I can change the volume so yeah

If you push the wrong one then the alarm will get louder. Which ones you push are indicated by flashing LEDs.

What I need is the following answered:

*26
*yes
*no, I have a stereo timer and so listen to music whilst trying to wake up
*Yes,
*no, that sounds like a lot for a simple alarm clock!
*yes that'd be kind of cool, but what about when it goes off for ten minutes and then I press snooze I have half made coffee... what if I forget to fill up the coffee machine the night before, it'll burn itself out. what if I'm away for a few nights and forget to turn my lights off, the alarm keeps going and keeps the coffee machine on all day?

Trouble waking?: Yes always have, I have insomnia to an extent.
Snooze? No, I either wake up or I don't
Loud? Yes - Volume is not always the issue though it could be placement. I use my blackberry and 95% it works, sometimes if its under my pillow or something its muffled.
Touch/Regular:Well if by convential you mean just the buttons then I would keep regular - touch screen too easy to hit whatever you need for snooze
Outlet Activator:Yes, the only thing that wakes people up more than sound is like we are biologically programmed for it

[*]Age: 18
[*]Do you have trouble waking up in the morning?: Morning? Morning to me is 6:30 PM. Having said that, not at all. I work night shift, so I'm working from 10:45 PM to 6:45 AM, then sleeping from around 9 or 10 AM to 6:30 PM.
[*]Do you find yourself using the snooze button more than once? Never use it.
[*]Is your alarm clock loud enough? I use my cell phone and iPod Touch. Either one by them self, barely. Both at the same time? Perfect.
[*]Would you be more interested in a touch screen alarm clock or a more conventional style clock, assuming the touch screen model cost an addition $50? Already have one of those if you consider the iPod. But if I had the money, I would make all I could in my house touch-screen
[*]Would you be more interested in an alarm clock that could switch on an outlet when it goes off assuming the addition cost was $10 - Yes. Pretty convenient.

Nope

Nope
* Is your alarm clock loud enough?
Yip, and I wear earplugs so I don't get woken up at night, and all I use is my Nokia 5800 alarm.
* Would you be more interested in a touch screen alarm clock or a more conventional style clock, assuming the touch screen model cost an addition $50?
Eh, the conventional. But only because I wouldn't spend $50 more. I wouldn't replace my phone anyway
* Would you be more interested in an alarm clock that could switch on an outlet when it goes off assuming the addition cost was $10 (think coffee makers, or lights)
Now that's an idea. Definately. Btw, how much for breakfast in bed?
