Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSSI’ve had many pair of headphones since the 80’s. I’ve had dollar store phones to high-end audio driving sound.

Absolute Lo-Jack Challenge 0

I’m Taking the Absolute LoJack Challenge

We are at an age where if we lose our connected devices, we feel lost or even violated. Not only is this a gateway to our friends and family through social apps, but it also contains our pictures, documents, lives – all on a smartphone, tablet, or computer. Last July I had my iPhone stolen (also known as “Cherry picked”), which put me in a loop. I technically went through this challenge back then unwittingly. I ended up getting a $15 “burner” phone while I was on a 2 day trip, then replaced with an old smartphone to save money. Of course we know that a laptop is stolen every 50 seconds. The price of any iPhone on the black market is a couple hundred bucks – while you spend over $600 to replace it yourself. You might have insurance through renters or home owners insurance, but the...
