Apple really has to update their alarm clock feature on the iPod Two features I would like to see is for a screen to come up with the time displayed large when the alarm clock goes off and an option for snooze. Also, I would like the ability to use an ON-THE-GO playlist for my alarm sound, instead of just the preselected playlists from the computer. I just put an old receiver in my room, and took out the baseboards, and wired up my room so that i can put my ipod next to me at night. Plugged in through the speakers. I'd also like to know if the dock holds the ipod at a good angle for an alarm clock or is it tilted very far back?
