If you're after an iPod dock but shy away from models with a premium price tag running triple figures, the Logic3 iStation TimeCube may be the sort of audio accessory you need. At £39.99, it could also be an ideal Christmas gift for your favourite gadget fan.

There's no mistaking the fact it's time you hauled yourself out of your comfortable bed with the Logic3 iStation TimeCube alarm clock. Huge digital numbers and a LOUD speaker will ensure you don't oversleep. Designed to take up minimal space on your bedside table, the TimeCube can be set to go off at different times on different days on either a weekday-only cycle or a full week. A buzzer or a track of your choice from your iTunes collection can be chosen to wake you. Alternatively, the FM radio with six station presets can be used.

Designed for use with the Apple iPhone 4, the Logic3 iStation TimeCube is a distinctive but affordable iPod speaker dock and is available now from HMV.co.uk, Amazon, Tesco. Next, Maplin and Logic3.com.
