Forget the gold -- Go for the aluminum!! July 26 2012
This afternoon we received Snooze samples in solid aluminum, and they look outstanding!! Each one is milled out of a solid block and finished just like your iMac and MacBook. These are anodized a few hours away in Gaffney, SC and milled out here in Charleston, SC. Cheers to our new German friends at Zeltwanger Manufacturing for enabling us to keep this über local!
Wish you could feel how heavy they are!! Impressive! These are manufacturing samples, so the process, materials and finish are pretty dang close to final. Take a look:
We did it! YOU did it!! July 26 2012
We have reached our funding goal on Kickstarter!!! Thanks so much to all of our backers who believed in our dream and put their hard-earned money behind us. And with only 4 hours left, we're seeing a nice increase in new backers wanting to get in on the Snooze action at the low, low Kickstarter-only prices :) It feels GRRRRREAT!
Snooze gets some love on Visualive July 17 2012
Thanks to some gracious locals, we have a sweet animation that will be popping up all over town! Hunter Hegler, our unofficial DU intern, whipped up this clean and engaging video for us. Now, the folks at Visualive have been nice enough to share it with their thousands of viewers through their genius platform of flat-screen TVs and digital flyers called "Vibes." Typically utilized only for local events, they've been unbelievably awesome to let Snooze in on the action. Three cheers for Hunter and Visualive!

Hitting the streets with Snooze July 09 2012
Ask yourself: When was the last time you found yourself in your pj's in front of the whole town? Was it in a dream? Or was it Second Sunday?...
The second Sunday of each month, the King Street Marketing Group closes the street to cars and lets folks run wild, eating and shopping on their own two feet. Since our office is on King street, we set up a bedroom scene on the sidewalk in order to grab passers-by (passer-bys?) and get their feedback on our latest Snooze prototype! It was majorly hot, but a good time was had by all. We even made it onto the local evening news (check our behind-the-scenes footage of Nate being interviewed here)!

Snooze confusion June 28 2012
We came across this post from dictoresno, who's noticed how not-easy it is to snooze an iPhone... Somebody tell him: He'd love a Snooze!! We've designed Snooze for folks just like him who want a better wake-up experience from their iPhones.
Here are just a few of the different screens you may be faced with when you're not ready to face the world:
