Researchers are presenting findings at the Frontiers in Optics 2012 meeting that observation need not disturb systems as much as once thought, severing the act of measurement from the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle.

I am somewhat "uncertain" about these results. I am looking forward to the peer response.

@Dean M. I agree with you.... I'd love to see the actual paper.

Here's a reference for you guys: "The results were published online in the journal Physical Review Letters last month and the researchers will present their findings for the first time at the Optical Society's (OSA) Annual Meeting, Frontiers in Optics (FiO), taking place in Rochester, N.Y. Oct. 14 -18." I think that those proceedings will be published, as such events usually are. Of course the popular press is open to question, as it rightly would be.
