I still haven't purchased an iPod yet or any mp3 player for that matter, but I do like to use iTunes occasionally to grab some music to burn. However if I did have one, I would definitely be looking into getting this new iHome - Clock / Radio for iPod. It's a home dock for your iPod or other mp3 players that is also an alarm clock. It would be nice to awaken to a chosen playlist of my favorite music instead of the usual annoying alarm beeps.
