They can cut off phone service in this and other countries but the theft is going to china etc that does not care or the be broken down to parts.
The chinese have iphone parts. They assemble the parts into iphones and sell them to the US. the iphones are then stolen from the US and returned to china. They are broken back into parts and it starts all over again!
What an intricate system! If it's not evidence of intelligent design, i don't know what is.
Offender: [sobs pathetically] "How am I going to pay my rent or car payment or buy food now? I guess i'll have to start mugging people."
No, the real crime is punishing a non-violent civil offender with violence (i.e. forced into a cage). It only takes a moment of critical thinking to realize that punishing non-violence with violence is a product of injustice, not justice.
no, the real crime here is a misleading title that implies he was given 33 months solely for the act of filming a movie with a camcorder.
If anyone knows of any app that keeps the phone locked out (so you need to enter a password to get into your apps) but which enables easy dialing of 911 (or selected people on your contact list). I'd be more than happy to hear what they are. That would be the perfect balance between securing your phone and keeping it easy for my kids to use to call 911 or relatives who live close by. (Not that those lock-screen passwords are perfectly secure, but they're better than swipe-to-unlock.)
yes. it's called iPhone. there is an option to make an emergency call from the lock screen. I'm pretty sure the same thing exists on most android and windows phones.
I've been in situations where teams communicated effectively over email, and i've been in situations where the sales team just constantly ran around in a tizzy peppering the engineering team with questions. Now, a breakdown seems to happen here since the speed of sales is not the speed of engineering. Sales people are always on the go. They are always pursuing the next big client. It's not uncommon for their requests to simply be a stream of, "stop what you were doing for that last request because i've got an even bigger fish."
That's not a bash on salespeople. It's just how the job works. That's manageable on a day to day basis. I get what they are doing, but i also recognize that there is usually a half-life of 1 or 2 days to these "urgent and important" requests. Most of the time coming back from vacation, i'd sort of breeze through these things, not really looking at them in depth. I didn't want to miss something actually important, or still relevant. I'd kind of like to know that the person with the actually important issue was maybe going to pick up a bit of the load rather than just spend 5 seconds blasting an email out and then claim, "hey. i did everything i could to get that client."
