    I love reading up on anything like this when it comes out, its so interesting. I am not sure how much of a problem something like this could ever really be as most people just like to use the lock as a casual layer of protection but I would definitely want it fixed if i was an owner.

    Anything that shows apple up (even a little) is also a enjoyable read in my book!
