Chacun voit midi à sa porte

I'll leave the translation of the title as an exercise to my anglophone readership. Or at least to those who think that Apple, in Australia, Asia and Oceania is releasing the iPhone OS 3.0 one day later than in Europe or the U.S. (evidence here and, surprisingly, here).

Guys, get a clue. This might come as a surprise to some of you, but the following three dates, seemingly different, are actually describing the same exact moment in time:

  • San Francisco (U.S.A. - California - PDT / GMT-7) June 17, 2009 - 10:00:00 AM
  • Sydney (Australia - New South Wales - EST - GMT+10) June 18, 2009 - 3:00:00 AM
  • Noumea (New Caledonia - GMT+11) June 18, 2009 - 4:00:00 AM

(Sometimes I wonder if there are still people who can own a Mac or an iPhone and yet believe that the earth is flat...)
