Apple Cancels Press Conference on iPhone Alarm Glitch after Steve Jobs Oversleeps
'Really Embarrassing,' Says Apple Chief
CUPERTINO (The Borowitz Report) Apple, Inc. cancelled a press conference today to address the glitch plaguing the iPhone's alarm function when company chief Steve Jobs failed to show.
"I totally overslept," Mr. Jobs later told reporters. "I've got to say this is really embarrassing."
Apple's engineers have been working day and night to fix the problems with the iPhone's alarm, but so far have seen only limited success, according to Jobs: "We've gotten the alarm to go off, but for some reason it plays 'Never Gonna Give You Up,' by Rick Astley."
Mr. Jobs, however, did offer a temporary fix to iPhone users whose alarms do not work: "For the time being, tape your iPhone to a working alarm clock."
