My Phone Was A Day Fast
My Phone is NOT Smart
I don't have one of these Smart Phones, for several reasons: one being that I have no intention of taking out a contract with the mobile phone companies - I have heard too many horror stories of enormous bills and unfair charges, with months to sort out the company's mess and people's credit ratings being ruined. Another reason is totally personal - i KNOW that if I had a Smart Phone, I would be checking the internet and my email very frequently, instead of enjoying life.
Do You Look At The Date?
I use my mobile phone to check the time, because I don't use a watch but I don't normally check the date. Last night, I happened to notice the date on my watch and it said 10 March. Now even though it was the middle of the night, I knew it was only 9 March, so while I was changing the date, I wondered why it had gone wrong.
Then it struck me - an ordinary cell phone does not know to take account of leap year. So it must have changed the date to 1st March on what was actually 29th February and I hadn't noticed.
