We're still not sure why people are willing to pay hundreds of dollars for an alarm clock when a $5 model from the pharmacy works just as well, but in all fairness to Logitech, the new $250 Pure-Fi Dream (pictured above and in the gallery below) does a lot more than just annoy the hell out of you every morning. Yessir, what you're getting here is a "premium bedroom audio system" featuring 3/4-inch tweeters and 3-inch woofers, along with dual alarms, motion sensitive controls (no more banging around for the snooze button), and a "one-of-a-kind" LCD screen that dupes all the vital info from a docked iPod. And to make sure that you don't become a homebody sitting in your room listening to your Dream, Logitech is also launching another speaker system designed to maximize your iPod experience on the go, the Pure Fi Anywhere (pictured in the gallery below). This followup to the company's mm50
promises longer battery life, a smaller form factor, and better remote than its predecessor, all for the same $150 price tag. You should be able to start traveling in style next month with the release of the Anywhere, but your whole morning routine won't get that much needed boost until November, when the Dream is scheduled to ship.
