Default Alarm Clock Options - 03-17-2011, 04:22 PM

I have the Duo with the JBL Dock. I would like to use it on the night stand as an alarm clock BUT, I am looking to replace the alarm clock with one that does:
Dual Alarms
The ability for the clock to open a web browser and start Pandora Radio.

Possible?
Marty

This is possible using Windows Task Scheduler, already installed on your duo (just Search for it). Create a basic task, daily, at the time you want, set the program you it to run. If I remember correctly it even turns the computer on to run the task if it's turned off.

Someone may have a better way of doing it tho...
