California Senate Rejects ‘Kill Switch’ Legislation

Filed under: News — admin @ 7:34 am

By a narrow margin, the California State Senate rejected a bill that would have mandated kill switches be installed in cell phones and tablets.

Generally speaking, I oppose Nanny State regulations. For example, we don’t have kill switches in our cars, which is also a technology that’s widely available. If your mobile gizmo is stolen, the technology exists to instantly lock it, rendering it useless. Manufacturers and cellular providers could implement this feature automatically, primarily as a courtesy for their customers. They choose not to. Therefore perhaps a law that puts people over profits may be in order.
