We’ve all been there: Some mornings simply aren’t compatible with a task as sophisticated as groping for an iPhone and then pawing at the screen or volume button to activate the snooze.
And for those especially drooly mornings when even smacking a massive rubber button is too much of a challenge, there’s the wobL: a stand-app alarm combo for iPhone that works simply by — you guessed it — wobbling it.
Ding-a-ling! Wakey wakey! If you have trouble getting up in the morning, why not become a tech blogger? Just kidding. We work, like, super hard. What you really need to do is buy yourself yet another gadget, this time a physical bell for your iPhone which will emit a thunderous TRING at breakfast time.
Apple retail stores are now installing special dock connectors to prevent iOS devices from being stolen.
