Every night before I am about to go to bed, I usually connect my iPod to my speakers and enable my iPod to be an alarm clock. Well, sometimes I forget to charge my iPod when it’s battery is low, so then I can’t use it as an alarm clock anymore. Instead I use my Mac to wake myself up. The creative folks over at Metaquark have an app for the Mac called Aurora. Aurora enables you to chose a time, playlist, and volume, for your alarm clock. A very useful feature with Aurora, is that it will wake up your Mac even if it’s asleep. Another terrific feature in Aurora, is that it will play your alarm in Front Row. You can be well assured that you will be awaken with Aurora!
