Editorial Recently, a story about people mistaking a news story for the Facebook login page has received considerable media attention. It's currently being seen by many as justification for the recent trend in locking people out of their computers for their own protection - but anyone with even basic mathematical skills and a calculator should come to the conclusion that this story has been blown way out of proportion.

No, I grab my TV remote and press the button on the top right to turn on my TV. I don't read "Power" every time I press that button. If you google for "facebook login" it is a reasonable assumption that the facebook login page will be the first hit and after doing it 100 times nearly EVERYBODY would just click the first link.(OK, maybe not geeks, because they don't use Google this way. But EVERY person gets into habits that become second nature. I sure know that I have, only difference is that I laugh when I see myself doing stupid things like that and adapt really fast. Some people aren't as amazing as I am though ;)
