3-year-old locks dad's iPad for 49 years

A writer for "The New Yorker" was accidentally locked out of his iPad for 49 years after his 3-year-old son repeatedly keyed in the wrong password.

He posted a screen shot of a message stating to wait nearly 26 million minutes before trying again.

According to Apple, consecutive wrong entries erase the device's content. The only way to retrieve the data is to restore a backup version of the device.
