Set Time Zone Automatically in Snow Leopard

Frequent travelers may be interested to know that in Snow Leopard your time zone can now be set automatically by bringing up the Date & Time preference pane, clicking the Time Zone view, and selecting Set Time Zone Automatically. A progress spinner appears while Snow Leopard sends off information about the Wi-Fi signals in your vicinity and receives location data back.

Got a Holiday Gift Suggestion?

Send Article to a Friend

Got a Holiday Gift Suggestion? We at TidBITS love the holiday season, even with the capitalist feeding frenzy that it has become. If you're interested in participating in one of our holiday traditions, send one paragraph descriptions of your favorite computer-related gift ideas (for giving or receiving) to me at <ace@tidbits.com> before 02-Dec-96. We'll edit them into an article for either TidBITS-357 or TidBITS-358, and we'll even see if we can wrangle some special deals for you. [ACE]
