Apple confirms iPhone alarm bug, says wait for tomorrow and it'll fix itself

That pesky iPhone bug that caused one-time alarms not to go off in 2011 has been confirmed by Apple (phew!), as has the "fix" -- either set a recurring alarm or wait, as it corrects itself on January 3rd and works properly thereafter:

We're aware of an issue related to non repeating alarms set for January 1 or 2. Customers can set recurring alarms for those dates and all alarms will work properly beginning January 3.

Warning! iPhone bugs: Alarms not working in 2011

One of our Australian forum members, TrAJik let us know that his iPhone alarm failed to wake him up this morning, January 1, 2011 (Australia time) and doing a quick look around the web it seems like he is not alone.

The iPhone had trouble with repeating alarms back during the change to Standard Time so this could be the same bug rearing its ugly head again.

UPDATE: According to comments below, this affects **ONE TIME ALARMS* rather than recurring ones, so the opposite fix should work:

Skype not working for you? You're not alone

Skype, the most popular VoIP (Voice over IP) service on the planet, has been down for many users for almost a day now. Users either can't log into Skype or if they can, when they try to place a Skype call they're told they're offline. It's the same if you're on the desktop or using the iPhone app. You just can't connect.

iTunes 10.1.1 causing install problems, crash bugs?

We've gotten emails, comments, even angry ALL CAPS shouts during iPhone Live's chat, that some users aren't able to install today's iTunes 10.1.1 update through Software Update, while others who are able to install can't launch it without it crashing.

For both bugs try going to apple.com/itunes and download the latest version directly.

If you're having any problems or issues with iTunes 10.1.1 let us know, along with any solutions that help you through.

Apple TV bugs: Sorry we could not reach the Netflix service...!

Turn on Apple TV, click through to Netflix, find what you want to watch, press play and -- "Sorry we could not reach the Netflix service. Please try again later. If the problem persists please visit the Netflix website. (112)" I've had this problem consistently lately and the weird part is Netflix on my iPhone and iPad -- on the same Wi-Fi network! -- work fine. It's only Apple TV that has the problem.

Why do iPhone notifications vibrate in your ear when you're on a call?

Have you ever been on a call on your iPhone when an SMS or email or push notification came in only to experience a terrible vibration right in your ear? iPhone has a setting to enable and disable vibrate both for silent mode (ringer switch off) and in general so you can set it up to ring, ring and vibrate, or just vibrate. What you can't seem to do is set it up not to vibrate when you're already on a call.

What's curious is that not everyone seems to complain about this, and some people seem to only notice it after a firmware update. Forum member iErick as well as others have all been experiencing this issue ever since they made the upgrade to iOS 4.2.1.

iOS 4.2 bugs: iPad Camera Kit no longer supports as many USB devices?

Since the iPad doesn't have a USB port or SSD card slot (can I say "grrrr!' again?) Apple sells a Camera Kit that's supposed to let you plug in your camera or card and transfer your pictures and video -- but also used to work for low power USB keyboards and Skype/VoIP headsets. I say "used to" because with iOS 4.2 that no longer seems to be the case.

Mark Gurman from 9to5mac has done some tests:
