This new year was a fuzzy start for all the apple customers and it wasn’t the daylight saying flu this time. There were a huge bunch of people who did not wake up in time for work on the 1st morning including me. Reportedly the iOS bug only affected iOS 4 i phones. Apple sold around 1.7million iphone 4’s by june 2010 so i am assuming that around 1 million people had a late start on Saturday morning. Never thought that something that small could affect so many people. Guess this just shows how dependent we are on technology and how much havoc it can create with a small glitch or malfunction.
[Update, 1/1/11 at 12:41 p.m. PT: Apple spokesperson Natalie Harrison confirmed to Macworld that Apple is aware of the problem. “We’re aware of an issue related to non repeating alarms set for January 1 or 2,” Harrison said. “Customers can set recurring alarms for those dates and all alarms will work properly beginning January 3.”] – Macworld
