Like most households we have lots of precise clocks and watches, but none of them are set to the right time (I think). With constant advancing or retreating because of travel or daylight savings, no timepiece is safe from being infected with inaccuracy. (Who has time to call for time?) Most clocks and watches linked to the exact time from Boulder, Colorado, are digital, but I’m an analog man. The 14″ Atomic Wall Clock is large, analog, and self-correcting. (It’s like having an atomic clock in your basement.) It’s spooky to watch the hands whirl around until they find their spot as it adjusts itself in and out of daylight savings time, a chore worth at least its price. Someday all clocks and watches (and appliances!) will be this smart.
A cool tool is anything useful that is superior to comparable items. If you think this tool is inferior suggest a better one. You are welcome to insult a tool, but comments containing insults to individual people will be deleted. Corrections of fact are always welcomed, if stated politely. Recommendations of better tools are dearly wanted and may be elevated to the front page.
