Find My iPhone is a good precaution against a thief getting access to your data, but since it's quite easy to block as a phone bricking service (just turn the phone off or enter Airplane mode, then wipe it before connecting to the internet) and also since lots of people don't use Find My iPhone, or password protection, it's not really much of a disincentive for a thief to steal the phone in the first place.
But Kindles do appear to be included under Android in Gartner's numbers - compare table two to table one.  Assuming the 9.4m Amazon sales in table two are included somewhere in table one, they can only be counted under Android or iOS, and they certainly aren't iOS.   If that's true, then the Android numbers aren't just Google activations.
Maybe you should rephrase then, instead of being passive aggressive?   Misunderstandings happen.
 Apple don't make an app for SXSW.  This is an app for iTunes Festival, which is going on at SXSW.
This is about tablets though, and I think Amazon Kindle Fires are included in the Android figures, which presumably isn't activated by Google?  Likewise all other non-Google Play Android devices.
Wouldn't be a useful stat to an individual buyer even if it was available. What you want is a comparison between the number of Macbook thefts when they were secured with a Kensington lock compared to number of rRMP thefts where the user would have used a Kensington lock if possible. Obviously that stat also isn't available.
Really?  Pretty rubbish feature then if no one knows about it because it never gets explained. If nothing else, what Apple mean will become clearer when the product ships.
With no clarification of what that statement means, it doesn't really tell us anything.  If it all happens on-device in a user-visible way it's hardly a problem.  e.g. since location is a part of calendar appointments, then it makes sense for iOS to be intelligent enough to tell that I want to drive where my next appointment is, if it's in 30 minutes time, and a 30 minutes drive away.  Doubly do if I've put in transit time (built into Mac OS X Calendar).  If the location...
 Except that they haven't done anything.  I'm not locking it up from a horde of people I know to be sociopaths, I've taking a minimal-effort precaution against the possibility of one person being an opportunistic thief.   I never mentioned two minutes, and the time period isn't particularly relevant anyway.  Only takes a few seconds to swipe a laptop.  A place like what?  A place with other people?  I'm not judging my colleagues or visitors at all, just taking a sensible...
That's a monumental leap to go from reasonable caution to a judgement of everyone else as sociopaths.  I don't think of anyone I work with as a sociopath, but I also work in a building of a hundred people, and I don't know all of them that well.   Plus, we have visitors to our office who I can't account for.  It's no great skin off my nose, as part of my normal docking ritual, to attach a Kensington lock.  If I were to use my own personal Macbook, I'd be doubly inclined to...
