"If I can't have my iPhone, no one can!"
That's what I thought after my precious smartphone was stolen right out of my hand a couple years ago. Unfortunately all the rage in the world wasn't enough to convince AT&T and Apple to send a team of ninja assassins after the robber — so he wound up keeping the gadget.
Now, if the iPhone had a self-destruct feature, things would've gone quite differently.
I would've walked away from the theft, grinning and humming the "Mission Impossible" theme song — because I'd know that too many failed attempts to crack my iPhone's passcode would result in a small explosion.
