From pattern locks to the controversial face unlock, there are a number of different ways you can secure your Android phone's lockscreen. Some methods are clearly more secure than others, but it comes down to user preference at the end of the day. So, which lockscreen security type do you prefer and why?
This Week on iPhone-Developers…
Every week we bring you a small small glimpse of our sister site, iphone-developers.com. The site is rapidly growing in popularity and as such, we want to make sure that if you are an Apple user, that you get your i-fix even when you are on XDA. Without further ado, here is this week’s story from iPD:
For those of you that, like me, woke up and wondered why some of your clocks were an hour off, today marked the “Fall Back” portion of Daylight Savings Time in the US, where clocks everywhere were officially screwed up.
Though my iPhone did get the memo, it appears that some of my clocks, and more importantly, my iPhone alarm, did not, going off an hour later than it should have. So what’s up? Is this an epidemic or is it a plot to keep you from catching the day’s NFL games on time?
It turns out that it’s an iOS bug, one that fails to adjust the time on your phone’s alarm to account for the rolled back time. Apparently, iPhone alarms, unless fixed, will go off an hour later than the official time, which is sure to cause chaos this coming Monday.
How do you fix it? Simple: delete your recurring alarms, and then set them up again. That’s it.
Or, you can be like this guy and show up late, missing key meetings, and then try to explain it to your boss. Yeah, you don’t want to be that guy.
Though I’ve yet to learn if this bug is iOS 3 or 4 specific, Apple has confirmed that the bug exists and a patch will be added to 4.2, which is soon to be released.
