Alarm Clock Usability.

Every alarm clock I have ever used has had the same mechanism for setting the minutes. You have to press a button to increment the time by one minute. After minute 59 it wraps around to minute 00. To go from 6:45 to 6:30 you have to press the button 45 times.

The minute button should work in increments of 5 minutes. To go from 6:45 to 6:30 you would only need to press the minute button 9 times. Does anyone really have to get up at 6:47 anyway.
