In case you haven’t heard, Daylight Savings time is changing this year. Instead of the clocks springing ahead 1 hour on the first Sunday of April, DST has been moved up a few weeks to the second week of March. Additionally DST will end a bit later as well, moving passed the last Sunday in October and ending the first Sunday of November.
For humans these changes don’t really make that much difference, however, they can and will reek havoc on computer systems programed to automatically adjust their clocks based on the old dates for DST. You can, however take solace in the fact that your BlackBerry will continue to work properly because Research in Motion has recently released a patches that will correct these issues.

This does pose a problem if you don’t have access to a PC.
This is exactly why i will be moving to an iPhone instead of the BlackBerry 8800 as soon as they come out.
