    I just ran into an issue with google authenticator.

    I'm trying to set up my android phone and ipad2 to generate the numbers for me. Problem is I can't figure out how to get accurate timing on my ipad2. Its not 3G so I can't use network to sync. On my Nexus S time is obtained from the network. My Mac Pro is also syncing via network and both are working correctly. My Ipad2 is not in sync. I tried changing time just as my Mac time changed but it didn't work and ipad is still faster which causes issue with google authenticator.

    Any ideas on how i can sync time correctly?

    If you can hold out or want to beta test, I have iOS 5 and can confirm that wifi iPads now sync their time with the apple servers
