There are clocks in: my car, my radio, my magnetron, my oven, my thermostat, my pc, my laptop, my camera, my alarm clock, my watch etc, etc. Twice a year, and after every power surge, most of them have to be reset, and many of them are so illogical that you need first to dig up the manual.
But years ago I bought a little alarm clock, working for years on one lousy battery, which resets itself automatically because it finds a signal from somewhere. If I travel to some place with a different time, it often finds its signal automatically. I never have to reset it - summer, winter. There's no visible antenna.
Why aren't all clocks like that?

Laptops don't need to be reset as you can use "Internet time" which automatically resets the clock every few days.
Other devices of which you don't 'see' the time, such as cameras , you can best set to GMT/UTC particularly when you travel. Other devices such as microwave ovens you can set at best to standard time and just ignore DST.

Why don't they change the clock this coming winter only half an hour en than leave it that way, until the next ice age.
