Can technology help you sleep better?

So I bought a Sun Alarm and love it. It slowly increases in brightness bringing my body to a state of being ready to wake up, before it buzzes. More than any alarm I’ve owned it wakes me up (instead of barely getting me out of bed to hit snooze) and I feel great most mornings. The only downside: it doesn’t fix lack of sleep.

But Pzizz is supposed to help with that… it’s a program that makes custom audio files that help you take power naps…

MacZOT.com Fans want Pzizz because ‘According to the National Sleep Foundation, sleep deprivation and its effect on work performance may be costing U.S. employers some $18 billion each year in lost productivity. Another study pushes this cost to over $100 billion.’ – link to full article

To the JERK who keeps comment bombing me

Your comments are being moderated, then deleted without ever being seen.

It is pointless… SO JUST STOP IT ALREADY!

Then go do the world a favor and jump of a cliff.

Ahem.

Jesus loves you, but I’m having trouble with that concept right now.

They are made out of meat

I remember reading this short story as a child, and enjoying it quite thoroughly.

This short film adaptation is quite fun… and took me right back to my days reading sci-fi before bed each night.

Watch the short film They are made out of meat — directed by Stephen O’Reagan, and starring Tom Noonan (The X-Files, Robocop 2).

Read the short story “They’re Made Out of Meat” by Terry Bisson.

Suppose you could save five lives by taking one – what would be the correct thing to do? Such ethical dilemmas provide classic “experiments” for philosophers. Here the [BBC] Magazine presents four such quandaries and asks readers to vote on what they think is right.

BBC Magazine: What if…
