Even the clock in the computer you're using to post here won't be affected.

I suspect you're right. They say things that flash 12:00 after an outage may be affected, then they start to list some exceptions, like VCRs. I think the list of exceptions is way longer than their list and most electric clocks won't be affected, just as you said.

I havent really owned anything that depended on 60hz ac for timing in probably 20 years. The article talks about things that flash 12:00 when the power goes off -- they wont be affected by powerline frequency or even to a large extent voltage. So if the article dosent get that right -- it shows the author doesn't really understand what he is talking about
