Without much question, we’re a family of geeks, tied to our Macs and PCs, always on the lookout for something new, different, useful and unique. For example, can you tell time using a binary clock? No. Not a digital clock. A binary clock. Binary, as in on or off, zeroes and ones.
Binary Time: Our Latest Mac Toy
Geek Clock is one of the least expensive non-free Mac apps you can get. At less than a dollar you’ll learn something new. How to tell time in geek.
Here’s what it looks like.
It’s all binary. A light that is on is a binary 1. A light that is off is a binary off. You tell time by figuring out what’s on, what’s off, and which dots mean what.
Geek Clock lets you change the LED colors, and you can have different colors for hours, minutes, and seconds (recommended). There’s a built-in learning mode (necessary for the Mac geek wannabe).
It can be displayed in 24-hour mode, always on top, in the Dock or smack in the middle of the Desktop.
There are even geeky keyboard shortcuts to bring Geek Clock to the top of the screen (and it can be resized). It even remembers where it was the last time, so it comes back to the same place.
The only real difficulty with using Geek Clock is figuring out what time it is using the binary on and off method. It’s the most confusing clock you can get for 99-cents.
