Alarm clocks are the gadgets people love to hate. We love the fact that they wake us up on time…yet we HATE the fact that they wake us up on time, too. Throughout our lives, each of us develops a unique disposition toward our alarm clock. Online Clock has scoured the data available on how people use their alarm clocks, in order to pose the question, “What O’Clock Are You – What’s Your Alarm Clock Personality?“.
