Question of the Day
New year causes iPhone alarm glitch
CUPERTINO | Many iPhone customers had some explaining to do after they overslept to start the new year because of a glitch in the gadget’s alarm clock feature.
A fix is in the works, and all iPhone alarms will work properly starting Monday, she said.
The glitch affects iPhones using Apple’s latest iOS 4.0 operating system, including earlier versions of the smart phone whose users have downloaded the latest software.
It wasn’t immediately clear what caused the alarm problem or how many iPhone users were affected. Online postings on blogs and social media sites described people being late for work, church services and other appointments on Saturday and Sunday because of the problem.
Atlanta celebration marred by killing
ATLANTA | Friends and family say a 14-year-old boy who went out for a midnight celebration was knifed to death at a downtown Atlanta train station after he was accosted by a man who accused him of stealing a cellular phone.
Rueben Hand was killed early Saturday as he was heading home with friends after attending the New Year’s Eve Peach Drop at Underground Atlanta, relatives told the media.
Family members say police have surveillance video of suspects, and family members hope the killer will surrender.
After the teens told the man they didn’t have his phone, an argument began, in which “Rueben told him to stop following us and was cussing at him,” Mr. Drake told WGCL-TV. Then the man pulled out a knife and stabbed Mr. Hand in the neck, Mr. Drake said.
