Time with an English Accent · I’ve been watch­ing the new thing to see how it holds up on its first day in pub­lic, and one of the feeds was about a talk­ing clock, some­thing that ac­tu­al­ly I don’t want in the slight­est, but it said click here for a Ja­va We­bS­tart de­mo. Frankly, I’ve had bad luck with that tech­nol­o­gy, but I gave it a whack and (after down­load­ing a cou­ple meg and ig­nor­ing the blood-curdling se­cu­ri­ty warn­ings) there was this slick lit­tle app that looked en­tire­ly OS-X-native in­ton­ing the time-of-day at me Bri­tish­ly. Hey, this Ja­va stuff is gonna catch on.
