In addition to an overly large number of photo enhancement apps, and too many nominal utilities of questionable worth, my Mac is also home to clocks. Not the 21st century digital kind. Visually analog clocks. Clocks with hands. If you’re a Mac user, an Apple watcher, and something of a timer traveler wannabe, you’ll appreciate the free AppleClock (get it while you can; Apple’s legal team is probably printing up cease and desist letters right now).
What does AppleClock do? It’s a clock. A Dashboard Widget clock. In this case, though, AppleClock tells the time (with hands) on an Apple logo background.
Yes, a picture is worth a thousand words.
AppleClock’s hands remain the same but pressing Command+R and the clock spins to create additional backgrounds– all Apple logos, of course, but in different and probably non-approved colors.
Lest you think that a free Dashboard Widget clock is thin on preferences, well, you’re mostly right.
AppleClock pays a bit of homage to Apple with the multi-colored logo from the early days, but there’s just one thing really wrong with this clever (and possibly temporary) use of Apple’s logo. You need Adobe’s Flash to make the clock work.
