This is not a question, but a suggestion. I think the iPhone Clock Icon needs to work as an actual, live and accurate, clock showing local time while it just sits there on the screen.
IMO, that's just a waste of processor, memory and battery especially when you have the time at the top of the screen.
That being said, you can provide Apple with your suggestion... http://www.apple.com/feedback/iphone.html
