Why snooze for 9 minutes?

What is it with 9 minutes?

When snooze buttons were introduced in 1956, alarm clocks had standardized gears which made the 10-minute configuration of the snooze cycle impossible. The gears only gave them an option of 9 minutes or 10+ minutes.

But look now, with digital technology, we have no limitations, but even my iPhone –one of the most modern pieces of equipment, snoozes for 9 minu
tes! We continue the trend. This is yet another example of failing to challenge traditional ways.
