Although beautiful and brassy, the inner workings of this alarm clock are decidedly up to date. As well as offering you three levels of snooze (5 minutes, 30 minutes or 90 minutes) it has the ability to talk to your wifi PC and/or your blutooth telephone.

Hitting one of the longer snooze options fires off a prewritten excuse to your boss, such as "I'm stuck in traffic", either by text or email while you continue to sleep like a baby.

       boss: "hmmn, [Fishy]'s stuck in traffic, but sending me an email... interesting.. interesting"

       Well, obviously, [fishy] is important enough to have a Blackberry.

       Cruel _and_ unusual. Amen.

       [neilp] "I'm stuck in traffic" would most likely be a text excuse for a 30 minute delay. Email excuses would be better suited to far fetched 90 minute excuses, such as "hi boss, just checking into my email from home as my dog has exploded and it's likely I'll be at the vet's for a while this morning".

       [AWL] Sadly, no. [Ian] Are you giving the Blackberry a Raspberry?

       Sounds like a Farmer-Fishrat Inc. idea. +++++!
