  • My requirements for an alarm clock don't even feature the time.

    Without my glasses, I can't focus beyond about a foot (if that much). The digits for me would have to be around wall size.

    Instead, I use my palmtop as an alarm. I can set four alarms and I can soundly sleep through them. Mind you, I've slept through a fire alarm before.
