Google Tells You What Time It Is

Google updated the OneBox (or the instant answer, if you will) that shows the local time in different parts of the world. Instead of just showing the local time...


... Google now adds a dynamically-generated clock, the time zone and other possible matches:


To trigger the OneBox, use one of these formats:
time city (time madrid)
time region/state (time queensland)
time country (time usa)

or other verbose formats:
time in...
the time in...
local time in...
current time in...
what time is it in...
what's the time in...

Other search engines also show the local time, but Ask.com does a really good job. It shows the seconds and more information about the place: a map and the current weather.
