BlackBerry does not get new Daylight Savings Time schedule
We have been scrambling to patch all our blackberry devices as the older version of the software will not synchronize calendars correctly. RIM's description of the issue:

Appointments and their reminders might appear 1 hour late on a
BlackBerry device if the appointments start in one of the following windows in
any year:

  • Between the second Sunday in March and the first Sunday in April (for
    example, 11 March 2007 to 1 April 2007)
  • Between the last Sunday in October and the first Sunday in November (for
    example, 28 October 2007 to 4 November 2007)

After all the money we spent on Y2K, the tech industry continues to demonstrate a complete lack of ability to learn from our mistakes. Very disappointing!

That is completely lame. I wonder if they'll change their tune as we get closer to April and end-users start paying attention to this.

We're also reviewing our applications to see what the impact of this change is across the board.

It's starting to feel like Y2K all over again...
