New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman isn't just sitting there on his hand waiting to become governor -- no, he's out there working for New Yorkers who have been wronged, from getting large mortgage settlements to investigating stop & frisk, in a new effort, killing stolen cell phones.

Schneiderman is teaming up with San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon to meet with representatives from large cell phone manufacturers like Apple, Google, Motorola, Samsung and Microsoft at a June conference in New York City to ask them to install a way for their cell phones to permanently disable themselves if theirs are stolen (and shoved up thieves' butts).

After a 40% jump in the theft of cell phones in New York City last year, Scnheiderman believes that giving customers the opportunity to kill their cell phones would end the black market for the coveted hardware.

“It’s time for manufacturers to be as innovative in solving this problem as they have been in designing devices that have reshaped how we live,” Schneiderman said, announcing the cell phone summit.

Schneiderman believes this is the best option for stemming iPhone-related violence in New York, something the city has a little bit of a problem with. One of the crimes Schneiderman cited was the fatal shooting of a young chef for his iPhone in the Bronx last year.
