Apple starts sending ghost emails from the 1970s

You get what you pay for

Apple’s programming genii have come up with another feature which fanboys will soon be claiming is super, cool and game changing.

We have already had a weird bug on Apple’s iOS devices in which if you were to set your clock to the 1st of January, 1970, it will cause your phone to brick. Jobs’ Mob has fixed that problem but it seems a new "feature" has appeared and it also has something to do with1970.

According to multiple user reports, it seems that there are a fair number of iPhone and iPad users who are reporting that they are receiving ghost emails from the 1st of January, 1970. These emails apparently have no send, subject, and they cannot be deleted.

The Tame Apple Press assures us that they are harmless but are failing to mention that the problem is caused by the same clown in Apple who can’t program a clock. The fault occurs when the person tries to cross a time zone and has to adjust itself.

Apple programmers can’t cope with programming clocks and phones often go tits up whenever there is a change to summer time. In this case if you cross a time zone, Apple sends you an empty email from New Year’s Eve in 1970. You really have to be a good programmer to do that sort of thing.

The fix is to quit the Mail app, followed by a restart of your phone by pressing and holding down the Home and Power buttons at the same time until the phone turns off and the glowing Apple logo appears.

Of course you could just hit your phone with a hammer and buy one which has an operating system which can tell the time.
