I'm sorry are you the person behind this video? Yes, I do like to pull an article apart to see the validity of the claims. As far as I can see, this person's iPad is not behaving as mine does by default. I'm not sure if that's cause he has iOS5.0 as I do not use that. Yes, I admit the keyboard thing was an err on my part, as I was reading his PDF I realized this was about non-simple passcode entry. As far as the password showing up, it doesn't happen on mine (and as others said doesn't happen on their iPad's as well). The letters that show up are huge, it's very very easy to read it off, and they stick around for quite a bit, I could take two screenshots of a given passcode letter before it becomes a mask. I do like what he made, it's cool. But I wonder if he went this far on an assertion that was not completely true (ie. masked passwords cannot be read).
