What might be of interest to any techhie following my 'digital & analogue' clock issues on iPhone is the fact that one very rarely sees digital clocks were I live. ( Barbados, Caribbean) Bedside alarm clock radios are rare indeed and most timekeeping in the home is by wristwatch, phone or AA battery powered wall clock which tend to have hands. 'Mains' powered clocks unless specifically set up for 50hz rather than the usual 60 hz simply run very slow ie losing 1 sec a minute. Most electronic devices are fine as are things like microwave and kitchen oven clocks. Security lighting timers running off mains are affected unless 'dusk to dawn' ie a 4h setting from dark will stay on 5 hrs, 6 will be 7+ and so on. Power here is 110/220 @ 50 which is why So being used to clocks having hands I prefer my phone to look that way too - which is ( in the world of widgets) not easy!!
