Apple's new file system timestamps files with nanosecond resolution.   A lot of Linux file systems also do that now.   The nanosecond ain't what it used to be...  I can imagine people wanting picosecond timestamps in the near future.  Who knows,  maybe we'll have something like NTP compensating for light-speed delay for the gap between the read/write heads and disk surface (assuming we still use heads and surfaces)  ; -)
Except that you still have the issue of “what time did this file get changed”. To most of us, that’s not really a big deal. A second either way … who cares.
