I had at least an hour and a half this morning to contemplate this feature request. Apple, Google, are you listening? Here’s something I’d like my smartphone to do, please:

“Good evening. It seems you have travelled away from home at a popular time of year for holiday making, accompanied by your family members, to a well known tourist destination. You’ve connected to a hotel’s wifi and I’ve noticed several transactions from the bar of a licensed premises. You normally go to bed a little earlier than this, so I hope I’m not intruding on your evening with this gentle prompt. WOULD YOU LIKE TO DISABLE YOUR ACCURSED 0628 WEEKDAY ALARM?!?!?!”

I think the copy writing deparments might be able to make it a little more succinct, but that’s the basic gist.
