Eine Kleine Nichtmusik

Keen as I am to take pot-shots at the whole "spring forward, fall back" nonsense....

.......someone at the Register should really run an idiot check on their stories.

Maybe a month ago, when Australia and NZ were moving ON to summer time, the iPhone bug would cause them to be woken up an hour late.

In the UK, however, we were moving OFF it, ie putting our clocks back. So misbehaving iPhones would have woken British users up an hour earlier than necessary. So I don't believe that there has been even a trickle of complaints of being woken up late.

BUT WAIT.....

(After reading the comments)

OK, now I'm REALLY confused. I can understand that maybe alarms set to (say) 0700 were held as 0700 GMT+1, which when we shifted back to GMT would mean they went off at 0800. Which is stupid of Apple. But then why were the people in Australia not woken early? Both populations can't have had their alarms made late! I still think there are reporters writing stuff without thinking it through. Bah!

Unthinking nonsense: the story of Daylight Saving Time (which, let us remember, was first suggested by Benjamin Franklin as a joke.)

Bah!
