    As someone who just recently had his iPhone stolen, if Activation Lock works as it’s supposed to, I can see it becoming a killer feature.

    In my case, all they wanted was the phone. Considering that one of them was already stabbing me, they could have gone for the wallet as well, but showed no interest.

    If you can take away the resale value, those kinds of thefts just disappear overnight.
