    Cell phones are the first common technology which automatically change
    time zones.  I have always wondered why Garmin and others did not put a
    little more effort into displaying the right local time automatically:
    a GPS knows where you are, add a map of the time zone boundaries and
    you can do it automatically, but nobody does!
    However I have noticed that my Motorola cell phone does not
    automatically change times for Daylight Savings Time.  You must turn
    the phone off and then back on again, and when it wakes up it then gets
    the right time post-time zone change.
