My question should not stop you from working on your plugin, but who
would use it, I wonder?
You would need external speakers. I don’t know of any person who is able
to sleep with headphones.
You would probably need a power supply for your device because it is
running the whole time and you don’t want to oversleep because the
battery is discharged.
Which device supports a good RTC? At least my iRiver 340 doesn’t have a
clock I would like to rely on. Any device with a radio controlled clock
Since small radio controlled clocks are quite cheap and not so power
hungry I always prefer those.
Your snooze feature is quite nice but again who can sleep with
Shade and sweet water!
