No, the computers are not wrong, but just too fast for you to tell when the date change really occurs. The date really changes at 00:00:001. Can’t answer for your clocks.
Perhaps it will be clearer if you look at the 24 hour clock systems used by the military, police, etc. Under a 24 hour clock system, the day begins at 0001 hours and ends at 2400 hours. 2400 hours – midnight – is the end of the current day, not the beginning of the next day.
