?You could prompt the user for a wi-fi connection?  Time would be set automatically, you wouldn't have to worry about timezones either.  Add a battery so it can remember the time, even if unplugged to be moved.  You would only have to plug it in to your computer once, or whenever your internet information changes.

Put the battery in at midnight :-)

If it supports a calendar, you may have to time-travel back to the appropriate epoch.

Here's a tricky problem. How to set the time? I mean a user friendly way for a user.

I think I have a solution but I wanted to table it here to see if anybody has anything up their sleeve. I will post my idea shortly but I didn't want to bias anybody's problem solving skill...
