Um am I missing something?

This is just a quick and stupid question ...

Why does the setup of the Kobo ask for a time zone and the actual time ... when the Kobo doesn't display the time anywhere that I can find?

Just wondering ...

Sort of just guessing...

Mostly so that library checkouts will work properly and expire on time.

Ah ... that actually makes sense!

Thanks

The Kobo device does have the time in the settings area, yes it would be nice if it would display on the menu or somewhere a bit easier to get to.

You have to go into the settings to actually see what time the Kobo thinks it is - the funny thing is that I have two and neither one can actually keep time worth a damn - the clocks drift out by 20 minutes a day or so (they're both registering about 3 days in the past at the moment). There has been no discernable effect regarding syncs or purchases.
