There are a number of free online alarm clocks available on the world wide web. With the recent failure of my Nokia N95 and the slow decay of my spare phone I have been left without a reliable alarm clock.
Last week I decided to turn to an online alarm clock
I used the first alarm clock that I stumbled upon http://onlineclock.net (and it didn’t let me down). I did however foresee that my Mac’s energy saving mode might stop the alarm from going off. I have tested this theory since and was right to make this assumption.
If you do decide to use this online alarm clock then you should:
- * Disable the energy saving mode/ screen saver
- * If you are using the online clock via a laptop ensure that it is plugged in
- * Take out any headphones that are plugged into your laptop / desktop
- * If you are using external speakers switch them on.
- * Switch up the volume on your laptop / desktop.
- * Test the alarm (set it to go off in a minute later).
- * Set the alarm
- * Have good night’s sleep
This is a simple yet effective alarm clock. I would recommend using this tool as and when your mobile phone fails. There are a number of more advanced features such as changing the alarm sound to live streams from internet radio stations however I decided to use the default alarm.
