    I'm reading reports out and about, and haven't heard of any that show the proper date.

    It's still 12/31/2007 in all of the places on my iPhone's world clock.

    Oops!

    I just stumbled across those same reports. It seems that iPod Touches are reverting to Jan 8, 2001.

    I just looked at my iPhone. 2008 isn't here yet so my US clocks (NY & Los Angeles) are correct. My London time states it's July 12, 31. Now, I don't know if I've traveled backward to 1931 or ahead to 2031.

    I just added Belgium. The time is correct but the date is the same as London. Just added Beijing and again, time is correct date is the same as London and Belgium.

    Whoooops. I just added Brisbane, Australia, and it says its 11:16am December 31th, 2007 (07/12/31, show in Year/Month/Day format). Yowch.

    The TIME is right, but apparently in Australia, the sun has refused to set. :p

    07/12/31 is 12/31/07. Different parts of the world write their dates out differently.

    It looks like it is just having a hard time switching years, when you switch the device to a time zone that is already in 08, it reads fine, but time zones that have not hit 08 yet now go to 8/1/01

    That IS January 1, 2008. Funnily enough.

    I realize that different parts of the country invert the year and I should have picked up on that but why would my iPhone, which is set to represent a date in a US format, present someone else's date in a different format.

    I'll know how my phone handles it in 5.5 hours. I just saw the problem cropping up on other (non-Apple) boards, and posted here to see what a higher density population of Apple people were seeing.

    Apparently, that seems to be part of the problem. I'm in the United States though, and I'm pretty sure its Tuesday in Australia already.

    --But my iPhone thinks its still Dec. 31, 2007 in Brisbane. So, kinda goofy.
    It should say "Today" if nothing else, but instead I get "07/12/31".

    i have 3 world clocks. i live in the US but at the moment i'm in the UK. phone is jan 1st and calendar.app is fine.

    world clock however says 'today' for london and paris, but 08/01/01 for New York (which hasn't turned into 2008 yet).. weird. BUG!!!

    can't believe apple could balls up a time app. lol.

    07/12/31 = Year/Month/Date.

    It hasn't switched to the new year but it isn't saying July 12th. My guess is that it will switch when your own time zone switches to the new year that's when the cell tower in your area will reset your phone.

    Yes, indeed. Manually setting the date to tomorrow, and all my timezones become correct.

    Manually setting to 23:17 today in my time zone (Pacific,) and all my other timezones show the day as "07/12/31", even for US timezones. (I thought maybe it was showing it in "local" format, but that's not correct for other US timezones.

    Very odd. Apparently it can't handle when your current year is different than the other timezones it is showing.

    I'm having the same issue here. I have the time for London in my world clock (don't ask why, it's more of a curiosity thing), and it's definitely screwy. I guess I'll see what happens once it becomes 2008 here... :|
