Some California lawmaker named Mark Leno says he's going to introduce a bill to require a "kill switch" on smartphones.
That means it will be possible for a user to turn shut down his cell phone if it's stolen.
Apparently it's too darn hard to contact AT&T or Verizon or whoever and have the carrier do that.
And, the "kill switch" capability that's already in an iPhone is too darn hard. Same for the "kill switch" capability of newer versions of the Android operating system.
No, you can't have companies like Apple and Google coming up with solutions that work for their customers. No, that's totally unacceptable. You have to have some silly Democrat write a law that tells companies how to do stuff.
I mean, it's worked so well for healthcare, right?
Here's what I want: a "kill switch" for stupid legislation. That's technology we could use.
