I wondered when the hell it was coming. I was waiting for something like this for a *very* long time. Thanks for being late to the party.

Hm.  Not only is this A clock dock, it actually looks like a GOOD one!  Nice design, dual alarms, 7-5-2 (yay), and gradual wake -- this thing looks good.  If it also has a solid battery backup and nap mode, it'd be nearly perfect.

Only complaint is that the display looks ugly, but I can live with that.

I am guessing at least a "c" note will let you take it home.

Very cool. I wish it was a little cheaper, but I suppose considering all its features $99 is still a pretty good deal. Maybe Zunerama will give one of these babies away at some point?  Grin

Also, is it just me, or does it look a bit like an Xbox 360? Like, the shape of the case maybe?

Nice looking unit. I already have a place picked out for it in my office. Do agree that its a little spendy for an alarm clock, and you would think for that price the remote would be included. Oh well
Its just nice to see stuff like this finally coming out for the Zune.

So when it alarms how can you control what song it plays?
Can it shuffle and do playlists?

I think the price seems reasonable, especially if it sounds good. I might be picking one of these up; waking up to my Zune's music sounds a lot more pleasant than the radio/beeper, and it'd be a great way to charge it overnight after in-bed listening.  Smiley
