No, no. Not at all. I was simply suggesting that maybe their point wasn't to get statistics out; but, rather, obtain eyeballs.

I think you're totally spot on - what a wasted opportunity and inferior article. They made a claim without substantiating it at any length.

Oh, and sorry if I offended you. That certainly wasn't my intent. The whole thing is humorous to me.

Exactly. This is simply inhumane. Regardless of the otrocities commited by the convicted, we cannot, as a society, debase ourselves by resorting to torture of the mind, body, or soul.

The department of corrections is supposed to be "correcting" human behaviour, not damaging it. Too much of that happens in prisons as it is. Now this doctor wants to exacerbate that?

Whatever organization that she received her doctorate from should revoke it immediately!

Is that you? To reiterate another poster's comment, this is just some dude's blog entry.

Seriously? WTF with the headline, Timothy? Is /. Into sensationalist, eye-grabbing headlines now? How about maybe only showing comments 5 at a time while you're at it? That should garner some ad revenue. That title is *very* misleading.

True story.

I taught my small, 20lb dog to not crap in the house, too. We always walk up a hill so he can crap in the field behind the house. He doesn't like to crap on short grass, either.

One day, on vacation in Kansas City, KS, we walked out of the hotel for a morning walk. We walked across the street (near a highway). We walked and walked and he wouldn't do his business. Finally, he semi-squated in front of a small, manucured bush and promptly deposited a turd on top of it.

Triumphantly, I left it there. Hey. At least no one would *step* on it!

Ah, cool. Good to know! Thanks for the update. I hadn't considered the immediacy of the locking mechanism.

As far as I can tell, this "bug" is bullshit. The worst that happens is that someone sees what apps you were running, the screens are greyed out if you "exploit" this successfully.

Try again, Apple haters.

Agreed! I thought about this while driving. Haters gotta hate. :P

KABOOM! I read some of the other posts. You DO have to double-tap the home button in really fast succession.

So, scratch my previous post.

I was able to replicate this WITHOUT having the 'Passcode Lock' enabled with a single home button tap.

I was also ABLE to replicate this WITH 'Passcode Lock' enabled with a double-tap of the home button. However, I was unable to access any of the open applications from the multi-tasking screen.

I was able to replicate this with caveats.

I was able to replicate this WITHOUT having the 'Passcode Lock' enabled.

I was UNABLE to replicate this WITH 'Passcode Lock' enabled.

I've now restarted an iPad Mini and am STILL UNABLE to replicate with the 'Passcode Lock' enabled.

I'm not sure what the problem with this feature is. Sure, they've 'bypassed' the swipe to unlock screen; but, the user has specifically poked and prodded this iPad Mini in what, I assume, is an extremely unlikely situation. By itself I'm not so sure this is such a major problem. If it had gotten around the 'Passcode Lock' then yeah; but, it doesn't seem to.

I have one. It's an ink pen with a camera in the tip. The camera reads dots on special paper and digitally records whatever you are writing / scriblling / drawing. It also records audio.

It plays back the audio, too. On each sheet of paper there is a timeline. Touch the timeline with the pen and it plays back from 0% marker to the 100% marker. If you touch the paper to a section that the pen wrote/drew it will start playing the audio from *that* point, too. It's totally awesome.

Oh, and no. I dont work (or know anyone who does) there.

I was four years old. We were at Myrtle Beach, SC. We were on dry sand, quite far back. I seem to recall the waves being large and clean, with very little chop; but not threatening to people up on the beach. A wave charged in, all the way to the boardwalk. The beach is relatively flat there, so the actual depth was only about a foot. My mother picked me up. My sister and my father were large enough to fend for themselves. I have no idea if anybody was hurt. The beach cleared. In the panic, my yellow plastic shovel was lost; but I spied it from up on the balcony of the motel. "Mommy, can you pllllleeeeease get it?". She went down, but another wave or a person must have taken it.

Since then, I've heard of at least one other incident like this. I think it was in Florida.

So...let me see if I got this straight. Two kids lost a yellow plastic shovel at Myrtle Beach, SC?
