PostPoints tip: Finished punching the clocks for the time change?
This weekend, you should have done your part in the national chronological ritual of setting clocks back for the end of Daylight Saving Time. But if you're like me, you forgot some of the less obvious timekeeping devices after tending to watches, alarm clocks and video recorders--and that's an easy thing to do, considering how many gadgets include a clock and yet (unlike computers and cell phones) can't make the DST switch on their own. Here's a sample list of electronic hardware to check: camera, camcorder, digital picture frame, MP3 player, HDTV, iPod dock... is the nature of the problem becoming clear? Some devices need a built-in clock to do their jobs well, but others only use a display of the time as a decorative element. This is something to keep in mind when you're next shopping for a digital device of one sort or another: If an onboard clock adds nothing to its core functions, look for a different model that leaves out that feature.
