Lenovo Incorporates (Possibly Literal) Kill Switch into Laptops

When Lenovo told us about its laptop theft preventative, the SMS Kill Switch, we didn't think they actually meant "kill the thieves dead."

That's the vibe we got when we saw "Laptop Theft Goes with a Bang," a video promoting the new feature, seeded by The 7th Chamber.

But if it's any consolation, even as the street crook spontaneously combusts, you can rest assured your laptop remains both safe and scratch-free.

The SMS Kill Switch now comes stock in new Lenovo ThinkPads. Actual WCDs (weapons of crook destruction) probably need to be modded in -- but hey, if iPhones can open car doors, that can't be hard.
