Kill Switch

Kill Switch fox levi saunders jpeg

One of the biggest “duh” technologies that we got in the last year or two was the phone kill switch. Lose your phone? Nuke it from orbit. Phone stolen? Nuke it from orbit. Jealous ex texting you at 3am? If you know their Apple ID password, nuke it from orbit. Johnathan Lyman

That last one about the ex; that is not theoretical. This has most likely happened to someone. Couples tends to share account information. Even within some families there is one Apple ID used for shared iTunes purchases and email.

Of course, Apple will get blamed for it when it happens and there will be calls for Apple to do something to make sure this can’t happen again. Tim Cook may want to start investing in magic pixie dust. Consumers never take responsibility.
