I got an Indoor/Outdoor digital thermometer with an integrated clock. The only TIME setting available on this device was to "Select Time Zone". Leafing thru the directions, trying to discover how to set the clock time, I read that the signal is transmitted from the US Atomic Clock in Denver, CO. Not only does it take hours to detect this (unknown bandwidth) weak signal, but it only shows/reads Mountain-Time, so its chronically 2 hours slow -- but to the Nano-second!!No Value Added for this technology.
"it should keep all the readings and just coast along on the internal crystal-controlled clock until the next time it gets a good calibration signal. It doesn't do that. It changes the date to some random number. Designed by Monkeys!"
Michael, is it good or bad? I think it's better to fix it permanently near to door or window, so that the signal reception is great
A slew of announcements about new materials and design concepts for transportation have come out of several trade shows focusing on plastics, aircraft interiors, heavy trucks, and automotive engineering. A few more announcements have come independent of any trade shows, maybe just because it's spring.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
