Find getting out of bed of a morning is a real chore? Need something/someone to give you a kick up the bum to move? How about waking up in style with Audion Innovision's new Edifier iF200 - This is basically an alarm clock addon for your iPod which taps into the iPod's internal clock and starts playing a song of your choice at a specified time. It can be had for an RRP of $99.95 AUD.

However, there is one line in the press material that doesnt quite sit right with me - "It is small enough to fit on your bedside table and integrates nicely into the bedroom decor." Now i'm not sure if the Edifier iF200 is available in other colour schemes but clearly from the picture of it below, it'd have to be a pretty hideous looking bedroom for this eye sore to fit right in.

Also, if you cherish your ipod and you're one of those people that have a tendancy to grab the source of noise that just woke you up and hurl it across the room or through a window, might be best to steer clear of this puppy.

Say goodbye to that horrible buzzer or scratchy radio station and wake up to your favorite tunes from your iPod. The iF200 works by harnessing the internal clock system of iPods, allowing you to set the alarm and what song you would like to wake up to. A snooze button is located at the top of the unit that silences the alarm in nine minute intervals, allowing you catch a few extra winks when needed.

Making the old new again, the iF200 has a retro, double-bell alarm clock look, with the new pink model adding a feminine touch often lacking in audio devices of old. It is small enough to fit on your bedside table and integrates nicely into the bedroom decor. What's more, it is a strong and sturdily built device so it will survive even the harshest of Monday morning temper tantrums.
