Alarm Dock


2 of 5 stars
What’s this?

If you stash your iPhone by your bed at night, here’s a handy way to keep it charged and functional: designery home products vendor Areaware sells Alarm Dock, a clever holder of sorts that displays the phone horizontally in a familiar presentation. The company even has a companion app that displays the time just like a clock radio.

Alarm Dock

The product copy says, “The Alarm Dock uses a nostalgic product language to meet the progressively thin and disappearing profiles of consumer electronics. It is at once a critique and an accommodation to new technology.” Uh, yeah. Anyway, I bought one for my girlfriend, and I’m happy to report that it’s a substantial object, meaning the wood (real beechwood) is solid and of sufficient weight to keep it from being easily yanked by the cord. Buy it here.
