The Retro iPod Alarm Clock is an iPod dock/alarm clock which hosts small speakers. The clock is designed to let you wake up to your favorite playlist, song, podcast or sound file. One can hit a snooze button to delay the iPod from sounding for nine minutes. Other features include an AC adapter which charges the iPod’s battery and a volume control on the back of the clock.

It’s very cute, but other than the snooze feature, I fail to understand how this differs from any old set of speakers.
The 5G and Nano both have alarm functions that do the same thing.

I actually have one of these, except in black, and though it may not be extremely different from other speakers, I do like it better than the alarm functions alone.  It actually uses the built in alarm functions, but plays the music through speakers instead of your headphones.  That’s better for me, and I guess that’s the point of it MirandaKali.

Unless I’m missing something it looks like it wouldn’t be much of an alarm clock. When I wake up in the middle of the night I like to be able to glance at the clock to see what time it is. Not have to turn on the iPods back light and look at the clock there.
