The Daily Ping

The Story About Ping was about a duck, not this website.

Something that doesn’t exist, but should. Pronto.

I’m tired of having 18 clocks in my house (really, I’m not sure if it’s 18, but it feels like it) and having almost none of them in sync with each other. The clocks on various devices need a way to sync up – so I can just set the time in one place and have everything from my oven to my stereo reflect that.

ClockSync is the idea. A remote control or wall-mounted unit where one sets the time or – better yet – the ClockSync matches the time on your PC or Mac. Thus, you can have your computer’s clock set to the “official” time, and all of your devices will follow suit.

What do you think? Should it include a salad spinner for good measure?

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
