10.6: Automatically set time zone by location System 10.6
In 10.6 you can let Mac OS set the time zone automatically. Open the Time & Date System Preferences panel, and select the "Set time zone automatically by location" option.

This works using CoreLocation, just like the iPhone. Even though it's just an option, I thought I'd post it because people probably don't use the time zone settings very often.

I believe that this only works over AirPort network connections. CoreLocation is querying the database of wireless base stations from SkyHook.

I tried this without much luck. Sitting in a hotel in El Paso earlier this week, it put me into the Cuidad Juarez timezone - Central time- rather than the correct Mountain timezone.

Back home in Reston, it said "can't set", which surprised me.

Worked great for me. Replaced "Cupertino" with "Santa Cruz". I can already breathe easier. This is great for traveling with laptops. I hope it doesn't mess with my filesystem.

Amazing. It is great feature of this iPhone. I like these types of gadget. But this function I have not found in any were World of gadgets. It is the fantastic iPhone.
