Time is something nobody have in abundance and allocating your time effectively in your daily life is a necessity, though this is for those who wants to become something in life.
Time management is a niche that is booming every day by day and considering too many things we have to think about, our own PC should at least keep track of time. Sometimes this may not be the case.
Though computers are meant to ease the burden on us, sometimes it can default. Yes, sometimes computers which are suppose to do and know everything can't even keep track of time.
