iLuv Ships iMM183 Dual Dock iPod/iPhone Alarm Clock

iLuv Ships iMM183 Dual Dock iPod/iPhone Alarm Clock

iLuv has been making iPod and iPhone alarm clocks for as long as we can remember, and so far as we know, they are about the best you can buy. The new iMM183 is taking things to the next level by being the world's first dual dock alarm clock with a weather radio. That's a lot of functionality in a small device, and if you've been looking for a great excuse to replace that aging alarm clock that has been beeping at your for decades, this is it.

The advanced clock is designed to hold and charge up to two iPods and iPhones (with dock connectors), and it can be programmed to set off multiple alarms that play songs or stations from whatever iPod/iPhone you select. In other words, you and your spouse can have your own alarm times setup, with each of you waking to a different song. Of course, the person who gets up last has to listen to both alarms, but that's the breaks for getting to sleep in!

The device is also equipped with a NOAA/S.A.M.E Weather Hazard Alert, so you'll be informed if some sort of awful storm is headed your way. It's available now for $149.99, and while that's definitely pricey for an alarm clock, the built-in speakers makes this a fine bedroom stereo system as well.

About SAME technology: SAME, or Specific Alert Message Encoding allows you to specify the particular area for which you wish to receive alerts. Since most NWR transmitters are broadcasting for a number of counties, SAME receivers will respond only to alerts issued for the area (or areas) you have selected. This minimizes the number of “false alarms” for events which might be a few counties away from where you live.

About NOAA:

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is a federal agency focused on the condition of the oceans and the atmosphere. Weather alerts and information featured on this product are provided by the National Weather Service (NWS), a divisional agency of the NOAA.

i can't say these devices interest me greatly, because the iPod connector interface is proprietary. If it were an open standard, with which I could connect other devices... it would be a lot more appealing.

I charge my iPod with my iMac and I don't use an alarm clock, ever. I just wake up when I'm done sleeping. (it's a very civilized way to do it)

This, while it doesn't interest me, might be a good gift for one of my kids. They still have to go and face the big, bad world everyday.

Does anyone have one of these and can testify to the quality of the sound they generate?

My brother got one as a present (something very similar to this). After a couple of weeks it's back in the box.

It's great for Apple lovers, but otherwise kinda pointless.
