Apparently, today, a bunch of people in the UK slept in one hour because of a bug in the iPhone alarm clock app

I would just like you to ponder the wider ramifications of this for a second. According to the news today, a glitch in the iPhone alarm clock software caused a significant portion of the UK workforce to sleep in by an hour this morning, making people late for work, generally confused, et cetera.

I am reminded of the moment at PICNIC this year when Soenke Zehle said he was astonished to watch Steve Jobs announce that people are now able to print from their iPads — and receive a standing ovation for this.

We are happy with so little. We depend on these devices so much. What will the next news story look like?
