I like the idea of an alarm clock with an iPod dock allowing you to listen to your own music in the morning, instead of what the local radio stations play. But I don’t like the idea
of my iPod or iPhone having to stay perched on my dresser all night long. That’s not an issue with the Yamaha TSX-W80 alarm clock though since your iPod or iPhone sits in a portable cradle that uses the company’s AirWired technology to wirelessly transmit your tunes to the alarm. And besides a design that borders on retro, the TSX-W80 is pretty basic with an FM tuner, digital clock with alarms, remote control and 2.1 speakers. It’s expected to be available sometime in December, but pricing info hasn’t been announced.
