In a popular Christmas story, the Grinch tries to stop people from celebrating Christmas by stealing the holiday because he didn’t understand what the season was really all about. The Christmas season can be expensive and stressful, but that does not explain why the first edition of the People app in Google’s Android 4.2 operating system removed not only December 25th, but the entire month from the calendar. Users who attempted to add a friend’s birthday or other occasion said they were surprised when the “date picker” feature went directly from November to January. The problem apparently only affected the People app, and did not impact the Calendar app. The problem cropped up shortly after the release of the new operating system before many people had begun using it and most users expected it to be fixed by an updated version quickly.— Jim L.
