Just got back from the great BestBuy where I got myself an iHome. I wanted to try it out so I plug it in, and then I remember, "aw crap, I'm gonna have to set the time on this thing, that's so annoying, plus if I'm gonna move it to the apartment next week I'm gonna have to set it again. Balls."
So I plug it in, and the most amazing thing happens. It knows the time and date all by itself (albeit Central time, but still). Holy crap. This thing is a genius.
