    Does anyone know of a good alarm clock that uses iTunes which also happens to be FREE? I did a google search but most of them were shareware. Thanks Mac Shack :bowdown:

    Could you use Automator? As in set up an event in iCal for when you want the alarm, then at that time have another section for playing iTunes? I've not tried it, but a quick look in automator makes me think it could work.

    thats what I did when I woke up with music. Only problem I had was I woke up when the music ended, and not when it began.

    Couldn't you just use iCal to launch a sound file at a certain time? Actually I think I've done it before.

    yeah, I tried the iCal trick today but I forgot to turn up the volume real loud. I'll give the iRooster a try. I assume it's free?

    EDIT: it's not free..
