Daylight savings, time wasting

I just got done spending a couple of hours downloading and installing updates to keep my PocketPC's calendar from going nuts when the new daylight savings rule kicks in next week. What a pain. Anyone old enough to have lived through the first DST modification fiasco during the 70's is having flashbacks this week. I recall walking to school in the dark, myself. I understand the reason for doing this, but wonder just how much money we'll save versus how much we'll waste dealing with the technology adjustments. My way cool Yes Zulu watch, which used to auto-adjust for DST changes, doesn't anymore. For $200, I can get new watch guts to fix it. How many hours of electricity savings will I need to offset this?
