If the phone was turned off for lack of payment, why would the police think that he had the phone with him? Even if he were crazy enough to carry it with him, would he be sane enough to charge it too? I can't see too many cases where turning on a closed account could be useful.
I'm opting to buy a plug-in prius next year. It will be cheaper than the Volt, and most likely higher in reliability.
At least I am seeing some return on my tax dollars, as the Volt has stimulated Toyota to keep their Lithium-ion plug-in on schedule.
This sounds alot like putting a whole bunch of Wall-e robots on the moon, and letting them stack-up a moon base. I hope NASA credits Pixar with this idea.

ION is about a very targeted market (mobile gamers and HD enthusiasts). They are very willing to pay 2x -3x the profit (not the cost) for a mobile gaming/HD product.
I see Nvidia as having a good future, as they are listening to their customers, and not trying to predict the market.
I am not interested in ION at all, but it delivers the goods to those that want it.
