An embarrassing bug has been discovered in the latest version of the Android smartphone OS as the calendar reminder system doesn't seem to think that the year is made up of 11 months and December doesn't exist.
Although the month appears in the calendar and can be used normally - the bug affects any reminders set by the user in that month.
The bug only affects versions of the Android OS, codenamed Jelly Bean 4.2.
The bug was reported to the Android team on the 14th November, and picked by the team yesterday, when the bug garnered a quantity of publicity.
The bug tracking page has resulted in a number of wags commenting on the Mayan 2012 doomsday scenario or how Google has stolen Christmas.
