[Craig Grannell commenting on the latest round of Apple’s software not working because of date issues](http://reverttosaved.com/2013/01/04/do-not-disturb-apples-qa-guys-are-sleeping/):
>Do Not Disturb failing to work is something that shouldn’t have happened, because someone should have remembered Apple’s previous failings with time-related features and rigorously tested it. That the feature did fail points to either a lack of engineers/testers at Apple, or a lack of giving a shit, and neither of those things is really acceptable.
It’s hard to argue with Grannell here. That Apple’s response was a knowledge base article that included no apology is also bullshit. There’s some things really concerning about this entire mess — and it is a mess — that I want to point out:
1. That Apple’s only response is a support article.
2. That Apple feels it is acceptable to users to “wait it out” instead of issuing a fix — assuming, of course, Apple can fix this in a day or two.
3. That yet another date bug slipped through Apple’s testing.
4. That the general Apple tech-press has largely decided to give Apple a pass, leaving only the “usual” naysayers to their business.
How is this problem so acceptable to Apple and to those that love Apple?
[Apple has refused to comment](http://arstechnica.com/apple/2013/01/ask-ars-why-will-apples-do-not-disturb-bug-fix-itself-next-week/). That even Jim Dalrymple, the purveyor of calling bullshit, [offered no commentary](http://www.loopinsight.com/2013/01/02/do-not-disturb-will-fix-itself/). [That John Gruber made a small joke out of it](http://daringfireball.net/linked/2013/01/02/do-not-disturb) (granted at Apple’s expense, but still [less of a slap on the wrist than Google got](http://thebrief.io/2013/friday-january-4th/#google_gets_off_the_hook_in_ftc_antitrust_investigation)). [Even the Android loving *The Verge* didn’t jump down Apple’s throats](http://www.theverge.com/2013/1/2/3828300/apple-do-not-disturb-fix).
What the hell?
