Google accidentally cancels Christmas

The Big G appears to have obliterated a rather important month in our calendars. Let's hope this won't affect our presents...

Every Who down in Whoville liked Christmas a lot, but Google, which lived just north of Whoville, did not. Yes, Google is playing the Grinch this year – Android 4.2, the latest version of Jelly Bean found on the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10, is missing the month of December from its calendar.

The rather embarassing error has been noted by the father of Android and we expect a simple update shortly to rectify the problem.

Now go off and console little Timmy by assuring him that his Captain Power Punch action figure with 20 points of articulation and karate chop action (or whatever the kids are into these days) will be sitting under the tree despite this set back. Bless him.
