Except that, as others have pointed out, we're all saturated with clocks everywhere we look. I have one on my cell phone, one in my car, one on my computer, one on my wrist, one on my pocket, one on my bicycle odometer, one on my DVR, one on my microwave... the list goes on and on." A man with ONE watch can know the time, a man with TWO can never be sure...
Yes, I agree with that assertion. However, the distinction is far from clear in the average person's mind. I submit that the average individual considers anything that shows the current time to be a clock, no matter what mechanism sits behind the display.I have a difficult time calling those things on a vcr, stove, cell phone a clock.
To me they are not clocks, just instruments that tell time.
To me a clock needs a tick tock sound.
