Apple posted a new TV ad showcasing a feature in iOS 6 dubbed "Do Not Disturb" on New Year's day. Coincidently, users have reported that the feature didn't work as it should on the on the 1st. Some have speculated that it was a bug similar to the Daylight Savings glitch that plagued some users during the time change a few years back, albeit this issue being a year change. Apple made a statement today on its support page regarding the problem, suggesting that users manually set it until said date as a temporary remedy. The timing is perfect, sarcasm!

Apple has released a small update for OS X Mountain Lion Developer Preview 3. Anyone running the latest OS X 10.8 Dev Preview can launch software update to grab the update, which includes a new Do Not Disturb feature for Notification Center. This effectively hides all banners and notifications from showing on the desktop so as not to distract you. They'll all be neatly stored and organized within the Notification Center pane when you're ready to review them. We're not seeing any other obvious changes, but if you catch any, hit us in the comments.
