Stolen tablet - now what
My Surface was stolen yesterday. I logged into Microsoft account and I can see the last location. The thief did not connect it to the internet after stealing it. And as they did not take the charger, it might take a while before they get their hands on a charger and power it on. Now, in the Microsoft account, you have to first Locate and only afterwards you can do the Lock option. This translated to: you have to spend the next days with your eyes glued on the Microsoft Account browser window, hitting refresh continuously, hoping in the 100 hours you will be monitoring non stop this window you will notice the 1-2 minutes your tablet will go online and you get to push the Find button and then the Lock button. I am thus wondering: how could a Microsoft engineer think of such a logic of a security system ? Why even bother to implement such an abomination of a 'security' feature !?
