	I would like it for all the above reasons as well as for the apps that
may needs time input. One less tap when I don't have to select am/pm.
Also, because the *customer* wants it!!

	Now why does a statement like that upset me so much? Is it because I
paid way too much for a device with limited functionality? Is it because
it sends the message the company doesn't care? Is it because I've had to
fight for warranty service? Or maybe because I'm angry at myself for
believing the hype surrounding the 770 and buying it in the first place?
You pick, it's multiple guess and there are no wrong answers.
