Android sucks, part 2|
My phone has developed a new feature. I call it "the Muse game". Every 24 hours or so, my phone randomly changes all of its notification tones to Muse songs. (Maybe this is because I only have Muse and Pendulum on my SD card, but I haven't seen Pendulum happen yet.) Any custom ringtone that was on my SD card is now played by a random Muse song -- the standard ringtone is not changed.
This was cute the first time, and maybe even the second time. I was confounded the third time, and truly befuddled the fourth time. The fifth time, the charm was really wearing off. j4cbo and Sully informed me that I obviously just had adrakeitis ("this sort of stuff doesn't happen to anyone else..."), and I was suspecting that that was the case -- after all, I am running a leaked prerelease update to solve the issue where they broke the #1 application on their platform (and haven't pushed an official fix yet).
Okay, well, uh... it seems that this isn't happening just to me. Someone saw this issue come up in May, on a stock 2.1 Incredible.
I want to like Android, I really do.
But... whiskey tango foxtrot, Google.
