Prosecutors in New York and San Francisco have given Apple's new iOS 7 software some high praise, all thanks to a simple security measure. District Attorney George Gasc?n (SF) and Attorney General Eric Schneiderman (NY), both part of the "Secure Our Smartphones Coalition," are "strongly urging" smartphone owners to apply the company's latest update because it now includes the Activation Lock feature by default. Although it's relatively minor tweak, the attorneys believe it could help to reduce mobile-related crime as part of the "Save our Smartphones" initiative -- in fact they're pressuring Google, Microsoft and Samsung to do something similar (although hopefully not too similar).

Most Android users would probably just cut it off. I rarely even use a lock screen.

Others copy, fanboys everywhere complains and blasts them for copying.  Then new lawsuits come up suing them for copying.
