Well, I certainly and completely disagree that this means every device has a
clock.  What a complete waste of money, time and effort for millions of devices
interconnected to a global or perhaps universal network all carrying around
their own little time piece, no two of which agree.  A central source of date
and time correct and compensated for networking delays, etc. is clearly the
correct solution to this problem.
