When I travel, I often use my iPhone as a bedside clock. I have a white noise app with a sleep mode, where it displays the time. Much easier than remembering to pack a travel clock.
I was amused when I saw these iPhone alarm docks (get it? “alarm dock” instead of “alarm clock”?) from Uncommon Goods. They’re really pretty – the wood is lovely. And you can charge your phone while placing it on the dock. If my current at-home alarm clock* ever dies, I think I’ll replace it with this one.
*I’ve had the same alarm clock since I was 9 years old. It’s called the P’Jammer and it’s pink and purple. It’s so old and goofy looking, but it’s a really good clock, so I’m keeping it around!
