Because digital clocks can be very small and inexpensive devices that enhance the popularity of product designs, they are often incorporated into all kinds of devices such as cars, radios, televisions, microwave ovens, standard ovens, computers and cell phones. Sometimes their usefulness is disputed: a common complaint is that when time has to be set to Daylight Saving Time, many household clocks have to be readjusted. The incorporation of automatic synchronization by a radio time signal is reducing this problem (see Radio clock).

By June 2002, Coldplay were ready to present the new album to their record label Parlophone. However, Martin felt it was "rubbish"; they were so far from being completely satisfied with the album that both the band and Parlophone delayed the release.[4] After a headlining tour, Coldplay went on working "Songs for #3". Phil Harvey, the band's manager and a friend of Martin, heard it and pressed him to rework "Clocks" immediately. Harvey pointed out that, with its lyrics that speak of urgency, its meaning contradicted Martin's idea of stashing the track.[3][4] Thus persuaded by Harvey, Martin then further developed "Clocks", while other band members supplemented his work with their ideas based on the main piano track, adding bass and drums. Coldplay recorded the song very quickly[2] because the schedule of A Rush of Blood to the Head had already been delayed; the album was released two months later.[4]
Before writing and composing "Clocks", the band had already written 10 songs for the album.[3] However, because A Rush of Blood to the Head was nearing completion, they thought it was too late to include the new song on it.[4] Hence, they recorded a demo and saved it with other unfinished tracks, labeling it "Songs for #3"; the band intended these tracks for what would be their third album.[3]

My intention with the purchase of this clock was to put it on top of a set of cabinets in my classroom so that all of my students could see it. Our school clock is covered when the projection screen is down, so I wanted no chance for students to say "I need my phone out so I can check the time." Well, that plan didn't work out because there is no battery option. So, I moved it down on top of a file cabinet. This didn't work because the stand that helps the clock stay upright only goes out about an inch and a half. This means that even the slightest jostle knocks the clock over. After four days of constantly putting it back up, I pushed it against the wall. Now only three rows facing forward can see it. I can't and 50% of my class can't.

Knowing it was not back lit, I wish it had a contrast control. That said, without a back light don't expect to be able to see all the display in a dimly lit room. Knowing that, I placed it in an area that during the evening it would get some light from the interior house lighting. I can't see the information on the bottom row from very far away in the evenings but the time digits are large enough that they can be easily seen with even a small amount of light. I would really have rather-ed to have a back lit one but I would have been going through batteries like crazy or have an electrical cord hanging down the wall.... you have to make trade-offs sometimes. Overall I am happy with my purchase.
So far, I really like this clock! I've had it only a couple of days. In the past, I've had atomic clocks, but they don't automatically change over to the correct time, when we go off of/on to DST--I've had to do it manually. This is due to where I live in the mountains. This particular clock is not of the atomic variety--strictly manual settings. I recently bought an Accu-Rite clock, which works fine. Problem is, the background for the numbers and letters is much darker than this La Crosse clock, and in lower light, it's hard to read. I've had clocks from both manufacturers, in the past, and I have to say that, hands down, the La Crosse brand gives a much better reading capability because of the brightness of the background, even from a distance. It's something that I learned the hard way. The size of this clock is great for my needs--on the kitchen window sill. The size of the numbers for the time is substantial, even though the clock does not have large profile. As I said, so far, so good.
A spare power supply at 6V and 300mA brought this clock back to life. It appeared to keep time and it was back to normal. Here's the thing, having built a few clocks I expect that 300mA is not enough to keep the time steady, so I'll probably lose a couple minutes here and there. Next step is to find a replacement power supply at 5V and 500mA and then this should be a good clock again.
Coldplay released "Clocks" in Europe on 24 March 2003 as the album's third single. The single was issued with two B-sides: "Animals", which was one of the band's favourite songs performed on tour but was not included in the album, and "Crests of Waves". The single's cover, created by Sølve Sundsbø—as with the album and its other singles—is a portrayal of Chris Martin.[12] Across the United States, while preparing "The Scientist" as the album's second release, Coldplay's US label felt the song failed to "provide enough of a blood rush for American listeners"; instead, they released "Clocks" as the second single in the US.[13]
