Have you noticed that some of the simplest things have become complicated? Take a simple battery operated wall clock. There was a time all you had to do is stick in one AA battery and manually set the clock. For begin and end on DST, you had to make the adjustments.
But now we have clocks that have backs resembling a time bomb, where you have to set the date and time and the months for DST. This information is kept on a lithium battery. When the TWO AA batteries are inserted, the clock (front) automatically speeds from 00:00 to the current time. The clock automatically adjust forward and backwards for DST.
When has it become so cumbersome that we have to use additional "non-green" products just to adjust a clock. Why is it so difficult?
