clock?

Hi,
I just bought a PRS-505 and have learned a lot from this forum. I have a quick question though: is there a clock? It just occurred to me after setting the date and time on my reader that the reader doesn't actually have a clock anywhere..., what's the deal with this? Is there an option to have a clock in the corner that I'm just not seeing...

I could not find such an option when I had a look at the SonyStyle store. What I think we may have to do is wait for hacks to be made for it to do stuff like a clock.

The Reader does keep track of time internally for a variety of housekeeping tasks (e.g. time stamping bookmarks) which why it needs to have the time set.

There are hacks available for the PRS500 that will display the time on the screen, but nothing for the 505 yet.

Regards,
Bob

While you can't see the date/time in the corner, on the 505 you can see 'em by selecting "Settings" from the root menu. The Settings menu will then include the date/time next to the "Date and Time" selection. This doesn't seem to work on the 500, though.
