Apple to attend summit on stolen electronic devices

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has announced that he and San Francisco District Attorney George Gasćon will be questioning Apple, Google, Samsung, and Microsoft officials about why the companies haven’t taken more steps to combat theft. Schneiderman recently sent letters to Tim Cook and other CEOs expressing his concerns with the theft of electronic devices, including the iPhone. Gasćon has previously sought ways to combat theft through technology. Both men have pushed companies to install technologies that would make a stolen device inoperable, thus eliminating the black market. The summit will take place on June 13 in New York City.
