Granted Apple would like that, another sale to boost the bottom line. But why would anyone waste spending $1500 or more in basic legal and court fees for an older/used $300~$400 device.
But if you want, you can simply look up the ammo procurement and allocation break downs on the DOD website, its public domain.
At the beginning of the 1st Gulf War, the Marines were just getting the M1 Abrahms tanks the Army was swapping out for newer models (before that the Marines were still on old M60 tanks).
In the late 90's (97-98) the Marines were just starting to get the venerable Singars radios. Up till then they were still using post-Vietnam era AN/PRC-77 radios.
Time and time again the Army goes and asks for more men and money, new gear, etc, because they state they cant accomplish the mission with what they have.
And time and time again the Marine Corps happily takes that "old outdated" equipment with fewer men and exceed... There has long been a rivalry between the branches, but maybe its time for the other branches to take a page out of the Corps manual and learn how to do more with less. You could drop military spending by half at least, if not more, by following the Marines lead.
And it was already shown/proven that the ability to remote kill stolen phones is already possible. All current new phones have this ability. Its the CARRIERS that do not want to enable it. They make money off you buying a new phone and off selling service to whomever stole your phone.
The Carriers are the only ones fighting against this.
I use to have WD Live devices on each of my TV's pulling from a network share. The problem is once you get a super large library (over 1000 movies, hundreds of tv show episodes) the WD Live units bog down and are slow to scan (5 minutes initially on power up to over 15 for a large library) and you have to wait to use them.
The WD Lives cant be left on or plugged in, each of t he 3 unit I had would get extremely hot, even left plugged in and powered down. We took to unplugging the power from them when we wouldn't be home for a few days just to be safe.
I ended up going from WD Live to Plex and have been much happier with it. I have the Plex media server installed on my PC and then placed Roku 3 s at each of my TV's. We can access the media anywhere in the house now, including our tablets. With plex I can even access my media files at home while traveling using my tablets as long as I have a good Wi-Fi signal.
Plex also automatically locks into my ITunes library seamlessly and allows me to pull up any music or playlists through Plex.
One of my TV's does support DNLA, and so does my R6300 router. I initially tried to use that to serve up my media but it didn't send Metadata. And while the TV will see the DNLA media files from any server, it will not play mkv files. Hence my using Roku 3's everywhere.
With Plex android tablet you can throw any media to any player in the house you want. On the Ipad you can download/sync any media... I do wish both devices supported both features instead of one and one.
There was an article about this less than a month ago in the huffington post... http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/11/20/iphone-kill-switch_n_4308924.html
