Does Anyone Really Know What Time It Is?

Does anyone really remember that song? Anyway,'s crack tech reporters have two different takes on the upcoming Daylight Savings changes -- which have been dubbed a "Mini Y2K" in the press.

How did we get here? Well, Congress changed the way daylight savings time works with a little provision in a massive energy bill in 2005. The idea is that more daylight in the evening will mean less use of electricity. But some experts are skeptical it will have much of an effect, and it could cause problems for consumers.

report too.

Are you going to have a mini Y2K this Sunday morning, when Daylight Savings Time arrives early?
