Have an iPhone? Late for Work?

I’m sure you saw it plastered on every news source – a glitch in the iPhone made people across the world late for work because their alarms didn’t go off (read the article from the Calgary Herald http://www.calgaryherald.com/technology/iPhone+alarm+glitch+leaves+users+fuming/4049772/story.html).

I’m sorry, but if your whole life relies on your phone, it’s your own fault. Did you not own an alarm clock prior to purchasing your iPhone? Do you not know that technology can fail, and often does? Don’t blame your iPhone, blame your complete reliance on one single (and flawed) device.

  1. I don’t think I have used an alarm clock for…ohhh about 9 years…since my first cell phone. I have had more problems (maybe cause I was young and didn’t use it properly) with the alarm clock than I ever have with my cell phone. I have an iphone and have never experienced this..even when this story came out (I guess my phone is sooo perfect, it wasn’t affected)
    So no really, I wouldn’t blame myself…I would still blame the phone, cause the alarm clock could of done the same thing….Whaaaa, have you never woken up with your clock flashing cause your power went out during the night re-starting alllll your appliances…including your ALARM CLOCK. =) Love you.

  2. Can I just say what a relief to find someone who definitely knows what they’re talking about on the internet. You as a matter of fact know how to bring an issue to light and make it absorbing. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.

  3. There are some fascinating points in time in this article but I don’t know if I see all of them heart to heart. There may be some validity but I’ll take hold opinion till I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we wish extra! Added to FeedBurner as well

  4. Right on! Just pleasing! Your writting manner is pleasing and the way you handled the subject with grace is memorable. I am intrigued, I presume you are an expert on this topic. I am signing up for your updates from now on.
