Did you wake up on time this morning? If you use your iPhone alarm to wake up, you might not have! However, it looks like the problem is fixed...
I first found out about the iPhone clock bug when my two phone alarms failed to go off on New Year's morning; a quick investigation on Google told me that the issue, which occurred when the year changed from 2010 to 2011, should be fixed by January 3. However, when I woke up this morning and an alarm test failed, I thought, "They still haven't fixed it."
Once my coffee kicked in, however, I realized that I should sync my phone in case Apple made updates over night. And viola! I tested my alarm again after the sync, and it worked.
If you were late to your first 2011 meeting this morning, you have a legitimate reason to tell your boss. But tomorrow there will be no excuses... sync that phone today!
And since this is my first 2011 post, I wish you a very Happy and Prosperous New Year!
