60秒科学:Mobile-Device-Thieves-Face-Off-against-Kill-Switch

听力内容:

60秒科学节目(SSS)是科学美国人网站的一套广播栏目,英文名称:Scientific American – 60 Second Science,节目内容以科学报道为主,节目仅一分钟的时间,主要对当今的科学技术新发展作以简明、通俗的介绍,对于科学的发展如何影响人们的生活环境、健康状况及科学技术,提供了大量简明易懂的阐释。

Mobile device thefts account for about one third of all robberies in the U.S., according to the Federal Communications Commission.

Many smartphones already include antitheft features. Apple’s latest iOS comes with Activation Lock, which lets iPhone users disable a lost device and then, if it’s recovered, reactivate it via its original username and password.

Samsung’s Galaxy S4 Android phone comes with a preinstalled LoJack app for tracking the device if it’s lifted.

California lawmakers want to take this protection further, making theirs the first state to require certain mobile devices be sold with kill switches or other theft protection. These safeguards would prevent stolen devices from operating on any network worldwide.

But device makers don’t liking being told what to build into their electronics. And carriers are worried people won’t pay extra to insure phones that have good security features.

Regardless of what happens in California, you can’t legislate common sense: stow that gadget away when there’s a chance it’ll be robbed.
