Google Goodies #7-What Time is it?
There you are sitting at your computer at 1:19 pm in New York City. But oh my you need help resizing your picture. You decide at that moment to call your friend in Washington State to help you while your brain cells are still alive. But then you stop and wonder will you be waking her up? You know how she gets if it is too early.
You don’t have a fancy watch on your arm and you haven’t figured out all the features on your cell phone yet. So you go to Google and type in Time Washington State in the search box.
There it appears the exact time it is in Washington State which is 10:19 am. You breath a sigh of relief because by then she has had at least 2 cups of coffee and ready for any question you may have.
Ah, another Google Goodie helps you to get the job done.
