In case you missed it, Google’s Android Jelly Bean 4.2 operating system shipped with a minor flaw: The month of December was missing. It didn’t affect everything, but the People app suddenly decided that November flowed straight into January like some kind of Monty Python sketch. Suddenly, all of the birthdays and anniversaries during the twelfth month were forgotten. Google’s promised to return December to the afflicted operating system, because they clearly have the ability to manipulate time and space. Also, it’s their operating system.
Here’s the post from the Android Google+ page:
We discovered a bug in the Android 4.2 update, which makes it impossible to enter December events in optional fields of the People app (this bug did not affect Calendar). Rest assured, this will be fixed soon so that those of you with December birthdays and anniversaries won’t be forgotten by your friends and family.
Also, this seems like the perfect excuse to include a video of “Forget December” by Something Corporate.
Our job here is done.
- Android forgets December
- Google wants you to play this augmented reality MMORPG
