    The iPad clock drifts more than my attention

    The simple fact is that the wifi iPad's clocks are always off... After some careful checking two of my iPads, I found that the clocks drift about half a second every 20 minutes.

    Like most here I didn't find a synch app that would allow a NTP query and sync. But after jail breaking the iPad I was able to install NTPdate from Cydia. It's for the iPhone but works on iPads and touches too. It allows you to specify a NTP server, query, and sync time. The only down side is that you must manually run it.

    I'm going to look into a script I can cron to do it automatically.

    Cheers!
