Well done, Apple. Well done.
The quick method to circumvent an iPhone's passcode-protected lock screen: tap the "Emergency call button," then four pound signs, [then dial] and immediately hit the Lock button. That simple procedure gives a snoop full access to the Phone app on the iPhone, which contains the address book, voicemail and call history.
You can't run other apps, but you can examine the entire address book, and make phone calls to arbitrary numbers. (Clicking on a URL in the address book won't launch Safari either.)
Weirdly, the phone will stay powered up until you initiate a call.
Ok, or maybe you wouldn't be.
Please enjoy jwz mixtape 095
. It is full of Halloweenisms, as I realized that while I had done two Halloween-oriented audio mixtapes back in 2008, I hadn't done one in video form. This is mostly older stuff, with some repeats from previous mixtapes, but I did make an effort to stay away from the more obvious "classics" of the season.

They've screwed this pooch so completely that I'm starting to wonder whether other search engines still actually exist. Turns out those are hard to Google for.
Nice to see that Apple is still the Official Laptop of Faking Your Entire Show, though.
(Most of set missed due to Recoil fakery, grr.)
