There can be no doubt that the clock radio was not one of humanity’s finest inventions. The very thought of waking up to the piercing din of alarm bells is enough to give anyone a bad morning. However, that’s not to say that radio is necessarily the best way to greet the day. The blathering of talkback radio or waking to hear some new pop rendition of Spanish Flea, only to have it wedged in your consciousness for the day, can also give you nightmares.
Enter the WAK3300 from Philips. It’s a part of Philips’ Streamium range of products, which uses wireless networking to stream music directly from your PC. You can program the WAK3300 to deliver your favourite tunes each morning at wake-up time to help ease you into your day. You could even program it to play a ringing alarm bell if that’s what it takes to rouse you.
