What do you get the iPhone user who already has everything? How about a swanky Bluetooth 4.0-enabled wristwatch they can use to pair with their favorite Apple device so they'll never miss your call again?
I am not a morning person. The daily transition from horizontal to vertical is usually accomplished by sheer force of will, and I have grown to despise the obnoxious electronic beep my alarm clock emits when it’s time to wake up. Well, at least that’s how I used to feel. Since I’ve been using the Sleeptracker Elite, waking up has been significantly easier -- and I feel better overall. Not bad for something as simple as a digital watch.
If we had our way, we wouldn’t wake up till it’s time to decide what’s for lunch. But when that’s not possible, your gadgets can help. First, make sure you’re getting enough sleep in the first place.

One of the little-known features of iCal is the ability to schedule future alarms along with an AppleScript action. AppleScript is Apple’s consumer-based programming language that allows you to write simple scripts that will automate repetitive tasks on your Mac. AppleScript lets you do simple things from opening applications and favorite websites to more advance tasks that can even change the behavior of your Mac.
