Topic: WANT TO BUY BUT NERVOUS ABOUT ALARMS - HELP !!!
Interested in getting this as an alarm clock which was what this was developed ffor originally but with all the people saying there are problems if the network goes down it makes me nervous.
I dont think the clocks should be widgets, they clock widgets should be build in the chumby or we should be able to load them on the usb stick so that if the network is disconnected our alarms would not be in jeopardy.
How could you sell an "alarm clock" device that may or may not work ??? We as consumers have to depend on our alarm clock to wake us up to get to our jobs. Get that functionality off the internet and onto the actual device. There should also be battery backup in case of power failure JUST like a REAL alarm clock. For people that are supposed to be innovative how can you make a device that cant work in the real world and do what an alarm clock is supposed to do.
Also we need to sleep at night so the screen should totally disable if you want it all dark and if you touch the screen it should wake up and show the time.
Cmon people it cant be that hard we all own alarm clocks.
There were tons of input from users as Ihave read the threads since last November but it seems like people who have bought this are complaining about the same thingsthey were asking you to fix 4 months ago.
