If the alarm is too quiet, make a habit of placing the Palm in front of
you (her). The brightly lit-display and sometimes the blinking LED are
prominent enough to draw one's attention. I often rely on the vibrate fea-
ture of my Tungsten because sound is fscked altogether. That headphones
jack has poor connectivity and I am not alone in this...
Enjoy the holiday!
