Daylight savings brings annoying alarm clock bug. Software fix on the way.

iPhone users living in southern Australia were supposed to get an extra hour of sleep with the change to daylight savings on October 3, but didn't because the alarms on their iPhones went off an hour early. Apple knows about the bug and it should be fixed in the next update.

This is a very strange glitch because the iPhone's clock correctly updated with daylight savings, but the recurring alarm clock does not recognize the new time. However, a one-time alarm works just fine.

Apple Trademark Request on "There's An App For That" Approved

Since the birth of the App Store and their ever popular commercials back in 2009, Apple and iOS devices have always been associated with the popular slogan "There's an app for that".  It only makes sense Apple would want to trademark the slogan that made the App Store so popular.  It's not just an advertising tool anymore, it's become so much more than that within our culture.  I frequently joke around when someone asks me how to do something, a frequent response to any iOS device user is "There's an app for that."  And normally, there is.

iPhone 5 to use dual CDMA/GSM Qualcomm chip, no LTE 4G until 2012?

Apple might create a dual mode CDMA/GSM iPhone 5 based on Qualcomm chipset in 2011 and push LTE 4G support into 2012 and iPhone 6 according to TechCrunch contributor Steve Cheney:

First things first — the iPhone CDMA model due in January won’t support LTE. But here’s where it gets really interesting: sources tell me that the iPhone refresh in mid-2011 won’t support LTE either. Instead, Apple will produce a dual mode iPhone containing 3G flavors of GSM and CDMA, which operates on all carriers worldwide. If this holds true, Apple won’t support the LTE standard until some time in 2012.

Angry Birds for Windows Phone 7? Microsoft Says Yes, Rovio Says No

You're Microsoft and today you're launching the brand new Windows Phone 7 platform and what better game to showcase that launch but iOS hit Angry Birds... unless of course the developer, Rovio, isn't making Angry Birds for Windows Phone 7 and didn't give Microsoft permission to use it. Whoops.

Whether or not Angry Birds will make it to Windows Phone 7 down the road is debatable, but a lot of developers have been contacted and asked to make apps for the Windows Phone 7 marketplace.  In some cases, they've even been offered cash incentives. Hit the jump to see the letter some developers have been receiving from Microsoft asking them to develop for Windows phone 7.
