It's being deemed an "extremely small" recall, but some Verizon iPad 2s have had duplicate MEID codes flashed onto iPads for the Verizon 3G network. One Apple Store employee has already claimed having to send over a hundred units back.
If there’s one thing we’ve learned in the last few years, it’s to never underestimate the hacker community -- they love a challenge, and they’re awfully resilient. Case in point: Apple’s latest iOS 5, which has already been jailbroken using an iPod touch.

While you were at home wondering how to get into one of those Oprah Winfrey-style Google keynotes where electronics are given out like Halloween candy, one of our developers was in the audience playing with his new Special Edition Google IO Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1.
We stole borrowed the Galaxy and forced it to take pictures with our iPad 2.
