    The Governor of Minnesota singed a new bill into law that prohibits the sale of any smartphone without anti-theft software pre-installed. The idea is to deter criminals from stealing handsets in the first place by allowing users to remotely disable and wipe a phone's data, rendering it useless. If a stolen phone is remotely disabled, there wouldn't be any monetary incentive left in the endeavour.

    This looks to be a good start. Other states are taking action, too. The Federal government so far is derelict. The companies for the most part are opposed as insurance is a money maker. Will be interesting to see how this whole issue plays out over the next months.
