>Let’s face it, our phones have a lot of potentially personal information about us on them beyond just location. That’s why it really sucks when we lose them or they’re stolen. And just imagine when these devices all have NFC chips in them for easy payments. That’s really going to suck. I’m sure the FUD stories will start about that in the next year or so.

Set passcode lock. Check. Set erase data after 10 failed passcode attempts. Check. Duct tape iPhone to hip…

As our phones know more and more about the financial parts of our lives security is going to become a bigger and bigger issue. It already is not taken serious enough by most users.
