There's nothing like a new bug to drag us into a new decade...but this one is actually real!

A number of Windows Mobile devices have reportedly been affected by a bug where any text messages received after 1/1/2010 would show incorrectly as 2016.

It seems to be ROM, network, and device independent but particularly affects devices made by HTC and LG.

Good news for those affected though as it is easily fixable with a cab file or registry edit.

Have any of you been affected?
