You are welcome Louis

Accelerometers and Stubbed Toes

Thank you Noreen for the video on accelerometers, some of my nerdy colleagues speak about these every now and then so it is nice to have a little better understanding of how it works.

And it appears that it ( the accelerometer ) is largely responsible for this really annoying device Wake N Shake.  While it might work for some, this would just make a morning grumpy person ( me ) more grumpy. 

I would rather stub my toe going across my apartment to turn off that third alarm than to put myself through this annoying torture. : )

The power button will not work when the alarm is active! And you can't remove the battery on an iPhone

A with Noreeen we see the true evil potential here, like setting your friends phone to go off on in a movie. I suspect that in end, there is always the power button.

That's evil! But had to have been funny.  I made the mistake of showing this blog and the Wake N Shake alarm site to my husband last evening. He played with that and all sorts of obnoxious wake-up apps the rest of the night, and he says he's now using Wake N Shake in the morning. I got up before him today, so not sure if it's true. He'd previously been using some stupid duck-quacking alarm that I hated. But it'll pale in comparison to Wake N Shake. And I can tell you this -- no way I'd ever entertain the thought of loading it myself and sharing time-to-wake data. That, to me, is totally lame.

I put it on a friend's phone and set it to go off on a commuter train. that was entertaining!

Fortunately, I don't have to wake and any particular time, and maybe fortunately I automatically wake up very early naturally. But, wake and shake might be used for other things, an alarm for important things to do, a curiosity to show co-workers, a practical joke machince, and who knows what else the program might be useful for.

More annoying things...

Yeah, this is out for married couples.  Unless you both need to up at the same time.  Reminds me of 'the sound box'  where, as a prank you lock an alarm in a tool box and then lay it on someones doorstep.  Evil.  Yes.

@ Beth, true and I see a few broken phones in the future. 

I might need something like this as I wake up in stages.  I'm not grumpy, but wander around like a zombie from room to room for a while.
