I really hate it when companies mess up the formatting for 24-hour time. Adrienne’s phone does this too, but in a worse way.
There are two basic rules of formatting time:
- In 24-hour time, hours less than 10 should be zero-prefixed, so 00, 01, 02, etc.
- In 12-hour time, hours should never be zero-prefixed. One does not write 06 PM. It doesn’t make sense!
Mac OS X Tiger messed it up. It was right in Panther. Why, Apple?!
Update: No, the settings in [International -> Formats -> Times -> Customize… ] appear to have nothing to do with the time in the menu bar. Actually I have no idea what those are used for, but definitely not the menu bar time. Try again!
