Users have discovered a rather serious exploit with the iPad 2 and its Smart Cover. In just a few seconds, anyone could easily bypass the password lock screen and use whatever application was left running before the screen was locked.
Oh dear. That's quite an exploit. Though not really bad, but it has its repercussions.
Apple now has a reason to release iOS 5.0.1 lol. This and Siri need to be fixed.
God I was reading about this... that's just messed up!
Glad I didn't shell out the $40+ bucks for one of these now!
i dont understand why anyone would....sure it looks cool but theres no protection the "smart" cover isnt going to save it if it falls....isnt that the point of a cover? to protect....and serve....yeah....
Well it's not a case. More to protect the screen from light stuff (e.g. maybe a coffee spill or a tiny pebble, etc.) more a gimmick though than anything.
Well to be honest with you, it wouldn't matter if you "shelled it out" or not. Someone could buy one and then use it on your IPAD.
What an exploit. staying extra far away from apple now :D
