    tldr: "your phone/mac should alert you when they automatically adjust for daylight savings"

    I completely understand the point he's making and also agree with it notifying you at the least.

    But really?

    "I ended up opening Google and searching for “time in Poland”. Gotcha! I could finally confirm that my iPhone and my Mac actually display the correctly adjusted time."

    Is it that hard to compare system times to the watch on your wrist or clock on the wall? Are we that far into the digital world that we no longer have access to these?

      I guess a lot of us are... I don't have a wall clock nor a wrist watch.

      We don't have DST in my country though, so I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

    I like the part where he doesn't trust his computer's time but trusts Google's.

    We should just get rid of timezones altogether.

    Isn't the urge to be notified about time change is based on not trusting technology? Historically technologies were not smooth and intuitive. We expected it to explain what it does.

    But great technology should not bother us. We should live our lives even without a thought that there is DST time change. Technology must take care of it.

    Remember Windows constantly showing popup that something is happening with computer: security, updates available, firewall is off...
