..RELEASED: 6/08/09, VERSION: 1.0 -- RATING: 3-1/2 Stars..

This is a really nice addition to the iPhone clock apps that are out there. You may choose between 3 different, simple backgrounds. Some of the features are: the clock works in both portrait and landscape modes, it automatically displays local weather, shows the local five-day forecast with a tap, displays day and date, and other useful options. I do like having both the time and weather displayed simultaneously, as well as the clean design of the display. If you were to buy a similar stand-alone gadget, it would cost quite a bit. Enjoy Rise&Shine for free, from the respected, well-known electronics maker, Kensington.

"It's time for an easy-to-use, easy-to-read app that tells you the time and the weather. With the Rise&Shine clock, you'll have a big, beautiful clock as well as the local weather. There's even a handy sleep clock disabler to keep the clock visible at all times. In addition, the current weather is continuously displayed in the lower left corner."

--Note:  This app requires OS 2.2 or later.  Rated 4+.
--Tip: The Rise&Shine clock integrates perfectly with the Kensington Night-Stand charging station to turn your iPod Touch or iPhone into a bedside clock that's charged and ready when you wake.

--Tech Jargon: microphotonics - Technologies for directing light on a microscopic scale. This area of photonics has had a major impact on telecommunications. In order to keep up with the Internet's exploding need for bandwidth, technologists are looking to replace electronic switches with faster, smaller optical devices. Enter the photonic crystal: a few ultrathin layers of nonconducting material that reflect various wavelengths of light. Photonic crystal may provide the means to create optical circuits (and other small, inexpensive, handheld devices) that can carry, direct, and process data quite literally at the speed of light. It is said that photonic crystals are to photons what semiconductors are to electrons.
