I love this little toy. If you keep in touch in “real time” with people around the world, but aren’t too sure what time it is where they are, this niftly little toy from Microsoft (for Windows only, alas) is very helpful. Here is what they have to say:
“Microsoft Time Zone conveniently runs in the system tray and allows you to easily view the date and time in various locations around the world. You can also quickly and easily add your own personal locations to customize Microsoft Time Zone the way you want.”
I live here in the American midwest (in Wisconsin), and I’ve got mine set to Paris and Izmir (where my sister lives). Very neat, and free!
