Idea of the Day: Shutdown Requires PIN

Excellent idea!

Daring Fireball

Fantastic idea by Cabel Sasser:

When my phone was stolen in SF last year, they immediately powered it down to stop Find My iPhone. Settings idea: "Shutdown Requires PIN"?

I worry that iPhone thieves have caught on to Find My iPhone and now know to shut them down as soon as they have a stolen iPhone in hand. Cabel's idea might keep them on the grid longer.
