Google Phones Forget December

0 Shares

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., (UPI) — Some users of California-based Google’s Android 4.2 smartphone operating system are complaining about the lack of a December in their phones’ calendars.

The users complained the latest version of the operating system omitted the entire month of December, skipping directly from November to January on the calendars, CNN reported Tuesday.

“Is Google the new Grinch who stole Christmas?” tech website CNET jested about the error. “Sure, the month of December can be expensive and stressful, but Google apparently has an app for avoiding it.”

Tech blog Engadget said the Android bug “makes end-of-year birthdays even less bearable.”

A post to an Android troubleshooting board said the company is looking into the issue.
