I Like Backwards Technology


I rented a cell phone for use during my stay in Korea, and when I want to check the time on the small lcd screen in the front, it displays an analog watch face. You know, the one that gives you the time using a small hand and a big hand rather than just telling you the time using numbers. Why? Why would the designers of the cell phone put a digital version of an analog watch when they could just put a digital one? Is there some strange watch cult that wants to estimate their time using 5 minute intervals rather than be told exactly what time it is?
