Determining the time in Australia

I have a couple of friends who live in Australia, Melbourne to be exact, and today I needed to call him.  So I looked up his number and then googled… “how to call Australia”….up popped a number of options but one gave very specific instructions.  Then I googled… “what time is it in Australia” and boom I got a pop up clock that gave me the day, date, and time in Melbourne!

It turns out that 4 pm our time is 8 am their time (the next morning)…so I called through to his desk and I got “G’day”….he had just walked into the office!
Wow.
Isn’t technology amazing?  And isn’t it interesting that I used google as a verb?
That’s our changing world.  By the way – here’s the link should you want to know the time in Melbourne!
