The "Flurry" sound is crazy-loud, I nearly have a heart-attack when it goes off.

2) On speaker, not headphone,
The media volume ALSO controls the main system/alert volume.
If you plug in headphones, all bets are off, and the system notifications BLOW your eardrums into tiny pieces.
It would make more sense to me that that the ringtone/alert volume should be linked, and be totally separate than the media/music volume.
I hope Palm releases a new volume control, with more control. I'd love to see a pop-up with 3 or 4 sliders, so I can adjust multiple settings easily. Make the volume switch control like it does, depending on what app you are in, but give us that extra control if we want. (Perhaps we can tap the volume slider when it pops up.)
Just a note to the OP regarding the alarm and notifications. This morning, I had an alarm set for 6am, and then another for 7am, and then an appointment set to notify at 7:05am. The alarms went off like normal, but then when the appointment reminder went off, it started screwing with my snoozed alarm. There is definitely something there that is not working 100%.
