“Kill switch” for Smartphones

I was researching this ‘kill switch’ I was reading about that Apple is going to apparently include in the next iPhone.

The following article was plucked from that research:

New York Attorney General
D.A. Gascón And A.G. Schneiderman To Convene Smartphone Summit To Address Epidemic Of Dangerous “Apple-picking” Street Crimes | Eric T. Schneiderman

From reading over briefly it is also a good source for seeing what issues are being discussed at a high political and legal [policy] level.
