I don’t know what it is about time zones, but they remain confusing even after you think that you understand how they work. When you live in a certain time zone, it’s sometimes hard to believe that the current time can be so different in other parts of the world. For example, I work with a company based out of Paris, and even though the time difference from where I live isn’t that extreme, it’s still interesting to think that when I’m starting to get into the swing of things with my day, they’re about to end theirs and go home at night. Yes, the world keeps on spinning, and time zones are a fact of life, however, you can understand them better with Qlock.

Qlock does offer a desktop download for Windows, but their Web site functionality is more than enough for anyone looking to quickly figure out what the current time is a round the world. Their interactive map shows you which regions are experiencing sunlight and which regions are still in the dark, and all you have to do is point your mouse cursor at or type in the name of the city that you want to see the time for. If you want to get a close-up view of the location, then simply click on the area and zoom in and out as you see fit. This is being written at 8:30 in the morning from a city outside of Atlanta, Georgia. What time was it for you when this was being written?
