    So what are we looking for here? Do we want Apple to make our iDevices un-stealable and un-loseable? Theft protection & theft recovery is, an should be IMO, the end users responsibility.

    Apple does, however, give us tools like Find My iPhone to use if our iDevices are stolen or lost.

    There's always going to be a fine line which a company must walk when deciding on a security scheme for a device. One on hand you have the need for security. On the other hand you have the need for usability. If you heighten security then usability usually suffers. Likewise, if you heighten usability, then security usually suffers. A delicate balance must be found between the two during planning and construction of new devices.

    Find my iPhone also gives you the ability to remotely wipe your device, to prevent any unauthorized access to the contents of your iPad.
