Setting the clocks? ...

At last check, in the Smith household, we have two remaining timepieces that need changing. We seldom wear watches as technology now does this for us.

Most of us now get our time from an internet enabled telephony device - I use mine like a pocket watch. It uses a protocol to synchronise its time with one of the atomic clocks used to synchronise devices running the Internet. The chances of inaccuracy are remote as it regularly checks in to compare its own time to the the time being monitored by these servers.

One wakes up, looks over, checks phone (aka pocket-watch) and is already in the correct timeframe - it takes mental little effort to change the two other wall clocks in the house. Yet - you will see everywhere for a couple of days in advance --- "Don't forget to move your clocks forwards/backwards etc".

So, my question - is this beginning to become a needless reminder.
