Smartphone Kill Switch Law Reaches California Governor's Desk


California is poised to enact a consumer-friendly law requiring smartphone manufacturers to install “kill switches” — that is, antitheft technology that would be activated by the carrier when a consumer alerts it that a device has been stolen or lost.
