Geek Tip: Use Wakerupper as a Fool-Proof Alarm

I am totally one of those people that sets two or three alarms in case one doesn't go off. I don't exactly trust my laptop as a reliable alarm source for fear it will go to sleep or shut off. And with traditional alarm clocks, you can never be sure if you set the right time or if you got the AM/PM mixed up. With Wakerupper, you'll never have to worry about sleeping in again. Featured on lifehacker, Wakerupper provides free wake-up calls (just like hotels) and reminders online. All you have to do is enter the date and time you want the call, your phone number, email and a reminder text that will play over the phone when you get the call. Wakerupper can also be used with the iPhone. I suggest changing your ringtone to something really annoying so you are guaranteed to jump out of bed as soon as it rings!
