Today's Free Idea

What I want is a service ($10 a month seems fair) that hooks up to a small box in my bedroom. It would have a wi-fi hookup to the Net, a speaker and a clock display.

I tell it what time I want to wake up in the morning. I use the web to teach it which information I'm interested in.

Then, every morning, it starts my day with a perfectly selected piece of music (picked by a program director, not me, based on my preferences). Maybe it wakes me up with Hannah Barbera sound effects on Tuesdays... Then it follows it up with the information I want to start my day--custom weather, or pollen count, or school closings or the Google news reports on the ten things I'm covering. Hey, if there's bad traffic or weather, it could even wake me up earlier.

If there's a power blackout, it reboots and has the right time. It doesn't worry about Daylight Savings (did you remember?) If I forget to press the "I'm up" button, it calls me on the telephone...

By the time I'm done shaving, I've heard what I want to hear, even if it's just the right music for today.

Wouldn't that be better than Casey Kasem or some shock jock?

If you build one, let me know. Thanks.
