Tim and Tom are joined by guest Larry for a critique of alarm clock
designs. As always, how a product meets each user's habits, needs,
and wants determines whether a design is successful. Tim, Tom, and
Larry haven't had much luck with bedside alarm clocks, including
models from Panasonic, GE, and Sony that they have owned for years
and years. But they do have some fun discussions on what makes a
good alarm clock design.
CONGRATULATIONS to Larry and his bride, Marci, who were married a
month after this episode was recorded. Tim and Tom wish them many
healthy years of marital bliss surrounded by well-designed wedding
NOTE: The GE model is the subject of this episode's artwork. Also,
Tim accidentally threw out the articles discussed in this episode
during a frenzy of autumn cleaning and thus cannot provide article
links in these show notes.
