A wake-up call well worth hearing.

Its there anything worse than being woken up by an alarm clock in the morning? Well ... how about having your precious naptime interrupted by that same jarring buzzer after you've pulled an all-nighter to get that term paper in on time. Fret not, distressed dorm dwellers, for the iH26 Dual Alarm Clock, part of the cutting-edge iHome line from SDI Technologies, Inc., Rahway, N.J., just made waking up--if still not a looking-forward-to-it pleasure--a lot less painful. How so?, you groggily may ask. Simple, the iH26 allows listeners to dock their own iPod into this portable alarm clock. Plus, there's an MP3/CD line-in with Patch cord, as well as folding neodymium micro driver stereo speakers for portability; a programmable sleep timer with 90- 60- 30- or 15-minute countdown; an adjustable sleep volume that facilitates the selection of a comfortable "sleep" volume level without affecting "wake to" or listening volume levels; a remote control that operates all major functions for iPod, alarm reset, and snooze reset; inserts to fit all iPods, including nano--and on and on it goes. The trouble is now that you're awake and listening to such great-sounding music, you just may decide not to go to class afterall.

The iH26 ($99) and other iHome products are available at major consumer and electronics retailers. For the nearest outlet to order online, or for more information, go to
