It bothers me that you let people know about the app and the methods the cops use to find the stolen iPads. The first thing that the thieving scum will do is disable that app. Presumably there's a few out there who don't know about the app, why tell them about it?
You need to know the person's Apple ID password in order to disable the app.
Thank you cops.
and thank you Apple team!
All the 8th graders in Ravenswood district are getting used MacBooks from Facebook. The day they get them they are being walked thru installing a tracing program, and it will all be well-publicized! The program is hard to disable, and when you know the laptop is stolen you can 'lock' it remotely so the thief ends up with a 'brick.' Gotta love the technology!
Enough! sez, "It bothers me that you let people know about the app and the methods the cops use to find the stolen iPads."
Not anymore Man! Upgrade to iOS 7 and the iPods/Phones/Pads become password protected. The thieves can't wipe the device anymore either.
One less thug and perpetual criminal off of the street is a victory for all of us. However, I just wish that there was a way to force criminals to pay for their own incarceration. Is there any way to ease the burden that such thugs have become to taxpayers?
Don't miss out on the discussion!
