Yes it's timey-wimey, but is it wibbly-wobbly? That could turn out to be a design flaw if not....

I'm afraid the story is a little exaggerated. If what Ye says, I figure that moving the clock off the floor and hanging it on a wall will change the time by about a second in 300 million years. That means the total error from the origin of the Earth would be in the neighborhood of 10 to 15 seconds. I would say that means the relative nature of time really is seen only in the extreme, at least if you're talking about changes due to small changes in gravitational field. And I would say that the headline for the story is just plain silly.
