Changing Time Made Easy

It’s that time of year when the clocks leap forward by one hour in North America. I find it amazing that so few companies make it easy for consumer goods to deal with this twice yearly event. Why don’t alarm clocks, microwaves, etc just deal with the time change? No, Really.

The irony is that I can go to Target and buy a $12USD digital watch that can automatically adjust to seasonal time changes, but the sorry clock in my $XX,000 car can’t make the same adjustment? Seems odd to me; I can’t believe that more products can’t incorporate that two cent component and a simple way to say what timezone you are in to free consumers from having to manually make these changes.
