Why is there no such thing as a DAB radio with an alarm?

(except for one really bloody ugly one)

DAB card and cron(1M)? Or does that count as "bloody ugly"?

Computers in the bedroom = bad!
And the laptop crashes too much to be used as a reliable alarmclock.

Bloody geeky, at least ;) (so yes, it's been suggested in the household already)

Unfortunately none of my systems live anywhere the bedroom, and I'm not very good at persuading hardware to play nice with *nix systems.

Besides which, we're after something moderately portable.

They mentioned the new Pure radio with alarm clock...

Is this the ugly one you referred too?

The Tempus 1 ?

Actually I was referring to:

but they're fairly similar.
