    I was on vacation for the last few days and took quite a few pictures with my iPhone. (Yes, I need a better camera.) Anyway, I just got around to uploading them to iPhoto and noticed that all the pictures taken from 12/29 to 12/31 claim to be from 2009.

    I've been reading about the Zune leap year fiasco and I'm curious if this is a similar (but less catastrophic) bug. I suppose the problem could be with iPhoto, instead.

    Did this happen to anyone else?

    Turn the iPhone around and see if you can peel-off the silver apple on the back; if it peels off and it reads: ZUNE then you've been punk'd. Start looking around for Ashton Kucher and the TV cameras, then toss your ZUNE to the ground and stomp on it... LOL Just kidding

    Give Apple a call...:eek:

    Yep. It only affected the camera dates. The date on the phone part itself was 2008. It is very annoying because I don't exactly see a way to change that on the photo's tag.

    Select the batch of pictures you've just imported and double tap to get menu.
    Select batch change. Menu will come up

    Set: change to date
