No, it’s not a video game. It’s all true. What the New Yorker journalist tweeted last Saturday happened at his home. Protagonists: his three-year-old son and his (father’s) Ipad.
In a desperate attempt to unlock the password and access the screen the child has typed the keyword, obviously incorrect, an infinite number of times, probably beating unconsciously at home on the keys.
Result: the security system of Evan Osnos’ tablet blocked the Ipad for 25,536,442 minutes. Translated into years: 48 and a few months. That is until 2067.
