Agreed. "Readers have picked Indian prime Minister Narendra Modi as their preferred candidate." Uh, what?  Someone has been stuffing the ballot.  If the person of the year is somehow the embodiment of the biggest news stories of the year, there is no way Modi fits the bill--except in India of course.
The statement was "The continuous rise of the debt-to-GDP ratio after 2023 indicates that current policy is unsustainable" (http://www.publicdebt.treas.gov/fsreports/rpt/finrep/finrep13/citizenguide/fr_citizen_guide_where_we_are_headed.htm) You realize that 2023 is 9 years away, right?
 Why do those numbers differ so substantially from these:  http://www.tradingeconomics.com/united-states/government-debt-to-gdp which are based on data from US Bureau of Public Debt (and show a ratio quickly approaching the all-time, post-WWII high? From the report you site (or a version of it), here is a more complete statement:"The primary deficit projections in Chart 5, along with those for interest rates and GDP, determine the debt-to-GDP ratio projections shown in...

I was going to refer to this article as a "zeroth-world problem" since it puts even most first-world problems to shame.  Yes, most articles here are addressing "first-world problems" and I don't have a problem with that.  But this one was just an order of magnitude beyond trivial. The other problem with this article is the completely distracting and confusing emphasis on the smart cover.  As I've been reading these comments, it's clear that the complaint is simply "I don't...
And you could set the passcode to "0000" as a work around.  But really everyone should be locking their devices before a "bad guy" gets his hands on it for 5 minutes.
