Have you used your calculator for something that was not really math related?

The HP46G - using its alarm and BEEP functionalities make a fine audible alarm clock.

I've written some code snippets that audibly announce the hour and minutes (5 minute resolution) that audibly 'announce' the time. FWIW, I wear glasses - obviously NOT while I'm sleeping, so to have the alarm clock give me an audible message is quite helpful. (I suppose that even if you are not visually impaired that an audible alarm is much less disruptive than having to move to look at the conventional alarm clock). Then merely reaching over and hit the keyboard will 'snooze' it until the alarm recurs.

I have not checked the sound level output of the 48S series yet, but I have noticed that the beeper element in the HP50G is significantly lower in sound level output than the 48G series.
