For the first time, my built-in alarm clock failed on my iPhone... Strange is I just upgraded the iOS yesterday too... hmm.. Maybe that alarm app is an omen.

Steve says:

How long does it take apple to approve updates for apps?
I ask because the game "Gangstar: miami vindication," which is my favorite game, doesn't work with ios 4.3.
On gameloft's forums, they said that they submitted the update to apple almost three weeks ago. Although the ipad got the update a week and a half ago, I'm still waiting for the update for the iphone.

Hey I noticed you wrote "Rice and shine" on your wake-up alarm. Is it just me or do you need to change it to "Rise and shine"? :P
