    Bugs will get fixed. It's still a cool commercial, whether or not they've ironically had a glitch arise the same day.

    Did they really intend to air it today? I don't know, maybe they are making a joke for all the hangover people of 2013 :p

    Its funny, little things like this get blown way out of proportion. I bet it made its way to the news.

    Not only does it affect iPhone users, any iDevice is getting this problem, and the best part is, it will keep happening. If it is now 02/01/13 on the other side of the world and it has been happening for one day right? No! On my side of the world, it's almost 03/01/13, and I still get this issue. For two days straight!

    Well, as long as the alarms are still working - I'm fine. Since when you wake up you normally take a look at your iPhone - and can turn off DND manually. It's worse when your alarm doesn't work like it should.

    Yeah, because Apple was aware of this bug before they filmed this ad and had planned for it to be aired. More ill-thought-out article writing from iFans.

    Is there an alternative way to still get DND activated automatically? Like turning back the calendar or something? It does not turn on auto anymore for all my iDevices running iOS 6.0.1. Does it work for people with 6.0 or 6.1?
