Mind boggling, and a little hard to get my head around:

I'm prepared to be surprised by a leap forward in medical technology. Haven't had a real leap forward since Salk. Or it could just end up a really good way to get rid of moles and warts.
The claim to "injects genetic code into skin cells, turning those skin cells into other types of cells required for treating diseased conditions," sounds a little vague, especially the *how* and *what* that is implied. But I can't believe anything technical filtered through a Journalism major (if we be so lucky). Newspapers need to do what every single other digital media hub does: Put the damn source link in the text. It's not like it costs extra points and it lets us get to the source of the story.
I agree with the comments you both made.
My mind is still boggled, but there are a number of outlets reporting essentially the same thing. More as I stumble on it:
