    "10-minute-long spoken word piece in front of 1,000 people",

    That's pretty cool for a 10 year old!

    The title is a bit misleading. I came here thinking that some 10 year old exploited the device itself, not just a improperly coded game.

    Guys stop getting all technical, it's a 10 year old kid unlike most other 10 year old kids. Good luck to her!

    Agreed.

    Yeah, agreed.
    When I think of hacking I think of code and exploits... not a time change.
    I did the same at 10
    And I am... in no way... a hacker.

    This is pretty cool because of the fact that she's only 10 years old and because she is a very athletic and active girl. This thing obviously isn't anywhere near groundbreaking, but it's still quite interesting.

    This is a useless hack. When I had an iPod Touch when I was 9 (I'm twelve right now), I used to do this all the time. I don't know what is so special. I read the title and thought it would be something amazon. And it is not an "exploit"

    Because she's 10 AND a girl?

    Although I think people should cut her some slack...

    "Waaaaa! This article made me read, and I didn't want to! Do you know how much important stuff I missed out on?!"

    Do yourself a favor guys, hack yourselves some free tickets to a weekend at the spa.

    When I was a 10 year old girl, I used to hack AOL floppies, and reformat them!!!
    And draw KEWT pictures of bunnies in pink highlighter on the sleeve!

    But this one time, in band camp, I...

    She discovered a bug. There is no 'hacking' here. She is not a 'hacker'. She did nothing to modify the game code, she didn't redirect its' functions to accomplish anything that wasn't intended. Why people are giving this girl kudos and calling here a 'hacker' is stupid. Those people are stupid. All this girl did was discover a bug in the software to make crops grow. That's it. Stop giving praise where it isn't warranted.
