Sony Clock Radio

The clock radio I purchased.

Literally, time for a change. It had been my alarm clock since I was in 8th grade. Yes, you may do the math. That is about 18 years ago. Yikes. It stopped working great more than 10. So, finally, we ponied up, and I bought a new alarm clock.

So, what’s changed in the last 18 years?

You could get clock radios before, and I think they even increased their volume in conjunction with the time it takes the owner to turn off the alarm. But, my old one never did that. This one does.

Finally! You can adjust the time for both the clock and the alarm by going fowards and backwards. Who woulda thunk?

It syncs, magically, with radio waves, or something. I plugged the clock in, and it knew the time!

It understands Daylight Savings Time.

It adjust for time zones.

It even recognizes that there is a day, month, and year to its being.

Yes, time has changed a lot in 18 years.
