It’s less than a month until school starts again, and a mother’s thoughts turn to getting those sleepy kids out of bed. The iHome iA17 App-enhanced Color Changing Stereo FM Alarm Clock Radio for iPhone/ iPod can help kids get themselves out of bed, and it will keep their iPod/iPhone charged, too. The iHome iA17 is an app-enhanced alarm clock, meaning it can be used with the iHome + Sleep app for expanded alarm functions or with the iHome + Radio app for expanded radio functions. It has a docking connector on top for use with an Apple iPod or iPhone, and there’s an AUX input for other audio sources. Use the sync button to sync the clock’s time with the iPhone, and there’s a battery backup in case of power outages. The neatest thing about this clock is its color changing functions: favorite color, slow-fade spectrum, fast-fade spectrum, pulse to music, or no color. The iHome iA17 app-enhanced alarm clock is $99.99 at iHome.
