It's a good announcement and kind of depressing.  I use one of those too.  I've known about the flaw for a while, but never thought to post it. 

Anyone know if you can use the bic pen to get into drink machines, which have a similar cylinder lock?

I thought I heard about this like 4 years ago.  They haven't fixed it yet?
