iPhone dock/alarm clock (almost) has it all

Sony's ICF-CL75iP Dream Machine is a nightstand entertainment center that might bring you more media than you want your bedroom. The $150 iPod/iPhone dock has a gigabyte of built-in memory for your favorite music or video files to play back on its 7-inch 800x480 LCD, and if that dock gets in the way, it retracts into the unit's base.

Its clock radio wakes you up to AM-FM music, iPod/iPhone tunes, nature sounds, or a 10-second voice recording of your choice. If you want to watch a video in your bedroom, its 7-inch screen displays MP4, M-JPEG, and AVI movies, and doubles as a digital picture frame displaying pics from your iPod, iPhone, or USB-accessible internal memory.

If you like to sleep in total darkness, we're thinking this relatively big screen is going to light up the night too much for your taste, even when dimmed down. Nevertheless, while this isn't Sony's fanciest iPod dock, it's one fine-looking clock radio. Too bad there's no ceiling-projected time and temperature. Oh well, you can't have everything.
