Hypothetical design question: upon snoozing an alarm, should the alarm grow progressively louder or softer?
Case for louder: you’ve been snoozing too much; wake up now.
Case for softer: maybe you really don’t want to wake up, so the alarm use that hint and eventually should stop bothering you.
This is a design question, a broader UI question, with no correct answer — I'm just curious what you think. It's entirely hypothetical, I don't make alarm clocks. But there are interesting parallels between this use case and notification systems used in desktop UIs, web UIs, and especially mobile UIs.
