Every night I sleep with an iHome next to my bed. I think it has an alarm function, but honestly I can't tell you for sure because I've never used it. In fact for some reason I don't even dock my iPhone on it, I just use the charging cable that comes with it. I also use my iPhone for an alarm every day, and while I've gotten pretty good at hitting the snooze "button" on the screen with one sleepy eye open I admit a big physical button would be easier. Enter Snooze. It is a convenient docking station for your iPhone, and perhaps more importantly it turns the whole top of the dock into a giant snooze button. It comes with a free alarm app that makes your volume button a snooze, and has other expanded options. It's on Kickstarter for another 16 days and is currently half funded. It you like it, support it.

It's a speaker! Shaped like a skull! What do you guys think: yay or nay?
Available in white or black piano lacquer as well as our favorite of favorites: walnut.
I can geek out on tech products just as much as the next guy, but what I really love is good looking and innovative product. I'm not sure how useful the BioLite really would be, but the concept is fascinating.
By converting heat from the fire into usable electricity, our stoves will recharge your phones, lights and other gadgets while you cook dinner.
Just make sure you have some matches handy.
I didn't even know it was possible to get an AM radio anymore. The saving grace for this one is (a) it has an auxiliary in source for your iDevice, (b) it looks gorgeous. Hand made by Devin Ward of LA, the Wooden MP3 and AM Radio is a one of a kind production. Literally. You won't find an other one like it anywhere.
Wooden MP3 and AM Radio $325
Here is the extent of my knowledge about record players.
#1 I want one.
#2 This one looks amazing.
Yep, that about sums it up. Seriously though, I have been craving something to play some of those old 7" EP's that I collected back in the day. So far this one is pretty high up on my list.
Any other vinyl loving audiophiles want to point me in the right direction?
Crosley Revolution Turntable $149
Gone are the days when you need wires to hook your speakers up to your stereo. I have seen a few wireless speakers before, but never any as good looking as these by Libratone.
Think of Libratone Beat as a modern piece of Scandinavian furniture. Simple elegance makes it blend in and stand out at the same time. True to the Scandinavian design legacy all materials are handpicked and high quality. Satin chrome handle, body of wood, high-end piano finish, and cashmere wool. Pick a color that matches you and you have the perfect piece of sound furniture.
Thanks Richie for the tip!
