    Important thing to keep in mind: as of today, Europe is now on Winter Time and clocks were set back one hour from Summer Time. This puts the U.S. and Europe out of sync by one hour compared to normal.

    This coming Sunday, most of the U.S. and parts of Canada will "fall back" as Daylight Saving Time ends.

    Daylight Saving Time for 2011 To End Sunday in U.S.

    This coming Sunday morning, while most people are asleep, the United States and parts of Canada will switch from Daylight Saving Time to Standard Time at 2 a.m. local time.
    Europe set its clocks back one hour to Winter Time this past Sunday at 1 a.m. GMT, which means that the United States will be out of sync with dozens of countries this week.
    The time change should go smoothly unless you happen to own an iPhone. Two years ago,

    For 2012, Daylight Saving Time will start on March 11 in most of North America; in European Union, Summer Time will start on March 25, leaving the U.S. out of sync with a good part of the world for two weeks (it used to be just one week). Daylight Saving Time will end on November 4, 2012.
