Spring Forward and Install Patches, not the fabric kind

TimeOriginally posted on the Silicon Valley Moms Blog

We already discussed our thoughts on Daylight Savings Time. I knew that I needed to move our clocks ahead one hour (that is TODAY just in case anyone forgot).  But I was not ready for all the emails I have been getting to apply patches to various electronic devices in my house. I feel like I am back at the IT department when I was doing computer support many, many years ago.sfk

So here is some information to help:

Anyone that has a PDA/cellphone should go to their company website to see what fixes apply to their phones. I use Verizon, and their site has details and links to the appropriate updates.  For example, Verizon BlackBerry users need to either manually change the time in the Options-Date/Time or apply a patch. For those non-techies, a patch is not the piece of fabric applied to cover holes on kids pants, it is a a small piece of software designed to update or fix problems with a computer program.

With my kids begging to go on a bike ride, I am going to manually make the change on my BlackBerry for now.....
