Update your gadgets for daylight-savings time

So you all know about the massive overhaul that's happening to Daylight Savings Time this year. "Spring forward" will be happening three weeks earlier than usual, and "fall back" will be pushed a week. Well, besides changing your clocks, you may also have to update your gadgets, which are programmed to adjust their clocks based on the original daylight-savings dates.

A few days ago, I had to run an update on my Mac and now Palm has released DST software for its smartphones. If you use your Treo to keep you on schedule, you'll definitely want to run this little update. Click here for instructions on how to update Palm OS devices and here for Palm's Windows Mobile products.

So what about your other devices? Well, apparently your TiVo is already set: An automatic update was

supposedly dispatched to DVRs last month. If you use a BlackBerry, you can download a patch from here. And if you rely on a Windows Mobile smartphone, you can get your update here.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
