Google Left December Out Of Its Date Picker In Android

This is what happens when you plague the marketplace with simultaneous OS versions, engineered for thousands of vastly different devices.

There are bugs, and there are pretty embarrassing and ridiculous mess-ups. This one was is a screwup straight from Mountain View, and it’s a very real problem. If you’re trying to add your friend’s birthday with a new event to their contact entry under “People,” and you use an Android device with Jelly Bean 4.2, and they’re born in December…you’re crap out of luck, because Google decided to leave December out completely. For all the years.
