A lock is only good at protecting things if it actually stays locked. The activation lock in iOS, for example, makes it very hard for someone other than the owner to wipe an iPhone or iPad and set it up as a new device. Very hard, but not impossible.
Two different bugs have recently been discovered that could allow someone to bypass Apple’s activation lock. One impacts devices running iOS 10.1 and another on the most current version of the software, iOS 10.1.1. Expert workaround exploited a weakness in the iOS device setup process, and he tested it on a locked iPad he purchased from eBay.Read more

This obsession may cause children to react to separation from their PCs, as well as their parents’ attempts to bring them back to the real world, with uncontrollable hysterics. Kids management is a complex psychological concept where each parent chooses their own way. The ability to wisely manage ‘tablet entertainment’ is not acquired by default, but instead it is seamlessly integrated into an overall system of education.Read more
A lot of people can be surprised that Steve Jobs forbid his kids from using new devices, including those that he created. During the interview Steve said: "My children haven't used it. We limit how much technology our kids use at home." It is strange to hear from the person who made devices that dictate fashion and identify trends.

They somehow thought that his house is full of touch screens, but iPads and iPhones are given to guests instead of candies. But it was not so. At all.Read more
