Do you prefer analog or digital time pieces?

    Do you count binary clocks under digital clocks (I do not). I have seen analog versions (using colored light) of binary clocks. I have also seen clocks that used the colors as used in resistor bands as digits.

    update 2014-10-20: this is a clock that writes the time on a small whiteboard, erases the time and writes again (repeat). I'd say it is digital too :)

      The Wikipedia article says "Most binary clocks are digital, although analog varieties exist", (and a look through Google images seems to confirm this) whereas my intent was simply to measure the preference for digital vs analog (irrespective of format).

        In that respect: many analog clocks are digital too nowadays :)

        Hmm. I recall seeing a watch which simply had a rotating dial, rotating once a day, half dark blue and half yellow, with only half of the dial visible at any time. Interesting, but I never could figure out what time it was telling.

        Other options:

        • yes
        • no

    Thinking about the current hype, you should add the options

    • smart (I don't care if it is digital or analog, as long as the vendor claims it is smart ;-) ) and
    • only working if connected to a phone

    TGIF, Rata

    ... and counting.

    If you didn't program your executable by toggling in binary, it wasn't really programming!
