"whose lives were propelled into turmoil" -Great verbiage.
As for the "update" to fix the problem, I believe the problem actually fixes itself and therefore doesn't require an update. Whatever glitch is causing the problem only interferes for a few days.
Personally, I blame Obama and his screwing around with daylights savings time. I think he's just upset that congress wouldn't let him have an on/off switch for the internet.

Question: If we weren't meant to the native Alarm Clock app, then why did Apple implement it as part of the software? How were we to know that it would be flawed before we started using it?

I use my $25 Samsung mobile as an alarm, and it works better (clock & alarm) compared to my 3Gs.

I have a regular (once-use) alarm as my snooze and a repeating for my "wake up" alarm that goes 10 mins later. 98% of the time, it works all the time!
Also, I don't understand why people complain about the tones the phone app makes - you can just sync M4R's using iTunes and use them for ringtones/alarm tunes.

Shows that Apple wouldn't have been ready for Y2k ...

I soley depend on my iphone as an alarm. It has never failed me in 2 years now. I keep it docked on my nightstand with Rise and shine app running as aclock. You do know that a regular alarm can fail also albeit rarely! Like poweroutage, battery drain etc. This minor glitch with the alarm setting is extremely rare!

Anyone dumb enough to rely on a single, mission-critical alarm deserves what they get.

I set my alarm every night and this morning it definitely didn't go off at 7:10. I looked at it and it was 7:20 but when I reset it for 7:30 it went off just fine.

Fortunately, I'm used to getting up right at 7am. I guess I should stop relying on the iPhone alarm.
It's pretty useful because it is on one of those hollow tables so when it vibrates it is pretty loud, and I have the Pokemon Red/Blue wild Pokemon music playing as the alarm :P

I don't use a regular alarm because I wouldn't want the buzzer (radio would NEVER wake me up) to wake up my kids if it were going off for too long. I'm out of my house long before they normally wake up.Hear my sporadic ramblings: @liquidzoo on Twitter

However, if you have purchased the app Nightstand, the alarm function works fine. I have it and use it regularly as a non-recurring alarm.
