It's funny. In the digital age, keeping up with it almost doesnt matter. My ipad, iphone, computer, and laptop updated immediately. I use my phone as an alarm. I don't wear a watch. I'm in a hotel at the moment, but even if at home, I don't own a VCR, my TV updates automatically, my XBox updates automatically. Other than the oven, truck, and microwave clocks there isn't anything to turn. And there are probably newer versions of all of those which also update automatically and will become the new norm.
We're rapidly approaching a point where the government can steal time without us noticing
