  1. The UK Gov’t hates it.  The Gov’t is responsible for your property since you pay the police to protect you and your property.  Taxes are an insurance premium.  

  2. This is happening every day all around the city.  I phones, I pads & people should be more careful with there belongings.

  3. How is it a bad idea?  If your phone is stolen, it becomes a useless pile of plastic.  If you lose it, you wind up getting another anyway.

    Once this system goes live, you’ll have to stop buying your iPhones from bodega back rooms.

  4. I don’t know if this a such a good idea. It has been implemented in the United Kingdom for a while.

  5. These guys are gonna have to go back to snatching purses now that Verizon, AT&T and others have partnered with the FCC to create a database banning any phone with a lost or stolen serial number.  That should cut down the resale value on these things tremendously.
