Nov 01 by Vishu | bug, iphone, malfunction
A bug in the iPhone alarm app caused the alarms to go off an hour late as Europe switched from daylight time to standard time recently. So if you want your alarm to go off at for ex at 4:00 then you must set it to 3:00 if you don’t wanna be late. This problem was seen a few weeks back in Australia when the time switch happened over there and now it’s Europe and next will be North America on November 7th if Apple doesn’t roll out the necessary fix in time.
But the question is why didn’t Apple roll out the promised fix after the bug hit Australia and more importantly will it be able to do so before it hits N. America?

After 30 years, the glorious life of the classic Sony Walkman has came to and end. Sony has stopped the production of the cassette Walkman after the final batch that shipped out in April.
So after that batch clears from the shelves, the world will pretty much be out of fresh Walkmans, no more of those cool mix-tapes (though they have been largely replaced by playlists anyways) .
After the launch of first Walkman on July 1, 1979, Sony sold some 200 million units during it’s lifespan of 30 years. An interesting thing to note is that this announcement was made just one day ahead of the iPod’s ninth anniversary on October 23, though the downfall of Walkman was primarily because of the introduction of CD players in the 90′s and not because of the iPod.
Update: Turns out that Sony will continue producing the Walkman in China to meet the demands in US, Europe and some Asian countries. You almost had us Sony!
