    The date and time feature in the system preferances says Greece is 11 hours ahead, my suite mate and cousin say it's 10 hours ahead. My suite mate looked in his calander and on the net. Why is the apple clock an hour off!? Does anyone know if the other international times are off? At least it seems to be right for the US! Right now US time is 6:40PM and Greece time is 5:40AM

    It seems to be correct, mine says 5:40 AM when I set it to Greece as do all the sites I've looked at. Greece is currently GMT+3 because of daylight savings, normally it's GMT+2.

    Daylight savings time changes occur on different days in different places

    The issue is that Dayligh Savings time changes occur on different days for different locations in the world. The US is later than most of the world for going to Daylight Savings time.

    Remember this weekend is the time to switch in [most of] the US. That means in the wee hours of tomorrow morning.
