The Samoa Observer's James Robertson reported today that much of Samoa
woke up in confusion today as mobile phones, computers, and other
cellular-enabled devices displayed the time as 10:00 when it was in fact
09:00. Many reportedly arrived at church early because their cell phones
incorrectly sprang forward. An anonymous employee at Digicel said that
Digicel hadn't been given enough notice. Vodafone Samoa apparently did
not respond to media inquiry.
The Observer's Marc Membrere reports tomorrow that the president of the
Samoa Information Technology Association (S.I.T.A.) criticized the
government for not consulting tech experts about the effect of changing
DST rules with so little notice.
