this also looks like these things can be categorized into different groups.

First, there are events or situations that set off the stolen-mode
(such as wrong pin, owner sending a message to the phone, possibly
even getting close to a gps coordinate, etc.).

Then there are actions to be taken: emit noise, turn off calling
features, phone home, send email home, broadcast message over
bluetooth, etc.

Then, it's just a matter of letting the user determine which actions
to kick off when an event occurs, which should be pretty simple to
configure/understand for even the non-tech savy users.


Semi-related: Does anyone know of a page on the wiki that deals with
this anti-theft discussion? Perhaps someone could add a page if it
doesn't? (I don't know how restricted the wiki is). It seems like a
good place to keep track of the ideas in addition to this list.
