Apple’s Activation Lock Brings Down iPhone Theft In Major Cities

nypd Apple’s introduction of iOS 7 Activation Lock has actually led to a decrease in iPhone-related theft in New York, London, and San Francisco, according to NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman. “The introduction of kill switches has clearly had an effect on the conduct of smartphone thieves,” said Schneiderman in an interview with the New York Times. “If these can be… Read More

US lawmakers praise Apple's iOS 7 Activation Lock, urge users to update

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 Gascón (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 — in fact they’re pressuring Google, Microsoft and Samsung to do something similar (although hopefully not too similar).

iPhone Activation Servers Crumble Under The Weight Of iOS 7


Happy iOS 7 day! Except for me. And legions of other iPhone owners who, for various reasons, had to activate their iPhone in the iOS 7 install process. Our phones are stuck in iOS 7 activation limbo.

Since early this morning, the activation servers are either down or very slow to respond, essentially rendering the phones useless and stuck in the install process. The situation is so bad, Apple reportedly issued an internal high-priority alert, notifying employees of the server issues that are preventing iPhone activation.

Apple better get its servers in line by Friday. There will be millions of new iPhones wanting to be activated.

In a perfect world, upgrading to iOS 7 would not require activation. However, if the install process fails, the best option is to restore to factory settings, which requires reactivating the phone. Or, perhaps, an owner decided it was a good time to do a fresh install, whipping the phone completely and starting fresh.

Or perhaps someone somewhere made a bad choice and bought a new iPhone today and needed to activate it.

Whatever the case, as noted by Apple’s internal memo and approximately a gazillion tweets, Apple’s iPhone activation servers are currently unresponsive for a lot of iPhone owners.

Microsoft mistakenly gifts Windows 8 pirates with a free activation key

Windows 8 logo stock

Microsoft’s final copy of Windows 8 leaked online back in early August and pirates have been battling to work around Microsoft’s activation technology ever since. Early attempts involved the use of third-party Key Management Services (KMS) servers that would activate a copy for 180 days, requiring a re-activation every six months. This work around has allowed Windows 8 pirates to use the operating system free of charge temporarily, but the software maker has now made it even easier to avoid paying for a key.

Microsoft is giving away a Media Center upgrade to Windows 8 Pro users until January 31st, and pirates have discovered that the key provided will fully activate a copy of Windows 8 that was previously temporarily activated through…

Verizon waives Xoom and Galaxy Tab activation fees on contracts from March 1st in a limited time offer

In an unforeseen act of generosity, Verizon has decided to scrap the $ 35 activation fee it charges with purchases of the 3G-equipped Motorola Xoom and Galaxy Tab tablets, leaving customers’ wallets a little heavier and hearts a little lighter. This change will be effective on month-to-month contracts starting from the first of this month or later — meaning a nice little refund for anyone acquiring an Android tablet through Big Red after March 1st — however we’re also hearing it’ll be a limited time offer. The intel has been communicated via email to Mobile Burn, and Droid-Life has also obtained a document saying as much, while we’re in the process of confirming it ourselves. All the same, it looks safe to get the (modest) celebrations going.

Can I use an Office 2007 activation code more than once?

I installed Office 2007 and then upgraded my computer to Windows 7. When I tried to install Office again, it wouldn’t activate over the internet, so I called Microsoft’s activation hotline and got an activation code. If I need to reinstall Office again on the same computer, will I be able to use the same activation code, or will I need to activate over the phone again?

Jobs suggests that competitors’ device activation tallies may be inflated, Google quickly responds

Not satisfied to simply trump Google’s daily device activation numbers, Steve Jobs added insult to injury at the Apple press conference this afternoon, claiming that unspecified “friends” have been counting handset upgrades in their statistical totals and not just newly activated phones. As you might imagine, Google was not terribly pleased at this turn of events, and issued the following retort: “The Android activation numbers do not include upgrades and are, in fact, only a portion of the Android devices in the market since we only include devices that have Google services.” Now, we don’t honestly know who’s telling the truth here and we’d like to be able to take both companies at their word, but this isn’t the first time even during this particular Apple shindig that questionable claims were thrown out as fact.

[Thanks, Kamal]
