(CNN):  The “kill switch,” a system for remotely disabling smartphones and wiping their data, will become standard in 2015, according to a pledge backed by most of the mobile world’s major players.

Apple, Google, Samsung and Microsoft, along with the five biggest cellular carriers in the United States, are among those that have signed on to a voluntary program announced Tuesday by the industry’s largest trade group.

All smartphones manufactured for sale in the United States after July 2015 must have the technology, according to the program from CTIA-The Wireless Association.

Advocates say the feature would deter thieves from taking mobile devices by rendering phones useless while allowing people to protect personal information if their phone is lost or stolen. Its proponents include law enforcement officials concerned about the rising problem of smartphone theft.

“We appreciate the commitment made by these companies to protect wireless users in the event their smartphones are lost or stolen,” said Steve Largent, president and CEO of CTIA. “This flexibility provides consumers with access to the best features and apps that fit their unique needs while protecting their smartphones and the valuable information they contain.”

HTC, Motorola, Nokia are among the other smartphone makers who have signed up, along with carriers AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint and U.S. Cellular.

The feature would let a phone’s owner erase contacts, photos, e-mail and other information, and lock the phone so it can’t be used without a password.

The feature, which will be offered at no cost to consumers, also will prevent the phone from being reactivated without an authorized user’s consent. The data would be retrievable if the owner recovers the phone.

Some phone makers already include the ability to remotely wipe phones. In Apple’s latest mobile operating system, iOS 7, a feature called Activation Lock lets users prevent their phones from being reactivated even if they’re reset.

The new pledge marks a reversal for wireless carriers, who have resisted making the kill-switch feature mandatory. Industry representatives have said they fear hackers exploiting remote-kill technology, while critics accuse the industry of not wanting to lose revenue from replacing and activating stolen phones.

In Minnesota, the state legislature could pass a mandatory kill-switch bill as early as next week.

Oregon state Sen. Bruce Starr, president of the National Conference of State Legislatures, said his group “applauds today’s announcement unveiling the wireless industry’s commitment to reduce the number of smartphone thefts each year by providing anti-theft tools on future devices.”

“This voluntary effort serves as another positive illustration of the wireless industry adapting to address consumer needs through self-regulation,” he said.

But an optional deal didn’t go far enough for others.

Autism awareness month begins in April

Irvine, Calif. (March 27, 2014) -– “The newest survey reports on autism prevalence are staggering. In the 1970’s autism affected 1 in every 10,000.” said Lisa Ackerman, TACA Executive Director. “We can no longer assume we are more aware or better at diagnosing. There is just more autism. It is time we offer families help not excuses.”

AAA

In support of April being Autism Awareness Month, TACA has created an autism action month campaign: #AutismActionApril to provide practical tools for companies and individuals who want to help.

What is Autism

Autism is a devastating neurological and biological disorder that typically begins to affect children between the ages of 18 months to five years of age.  Some people with autism are severely affected, cannot speak, require constant one-on-one care, and are never able to live independently. While others who have less severe symptoms, can communicate, and eventually acquire the necessary skills to live on their own.

International music star David Guetta, together with the United Nations and international aid organizations tonight launched a music video for the new track ‘One Voice’, in support of “The World Needs More___” campaign to raise funds for humanitarian emergencies. The track and video were penned and performed for the campaign by music artist Mikky Ekko.

The music video was projected onto the exterior of the iconic United Nations Headquarters building in New York during a special launch event attended by United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Under-Secretary-General Valerie Amos, David Guetta and many of the campaign’s key partners and supporters.

“The World Needs More___” campaign enables leading brands to sponsor a word they believe the world could use more of. Each time these words are shared on Twitter or through the campaign website www.theworldneedsmore.org, US$1 is unlocked to support aid efforts in the world’s most underfunded crises, literally turning words into action. The campaign was launched on World Humanitarian Day, 19 August, and the video is being launched now to raise funds that can go directly to ease the devastation and loss caused by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

David Guetta produced the video especially for the United Nations. “Music is a powerful way to connect and to bring people together,” said Mr. Guetta. “Together we can use our voices to make a real difference for people in need around the world. I am so honoured to be part of this campaign. If we can make a change just by saying what the world needs now and raise money to help the UN — wow. That’s incredible. I want the video to show just what the UN does to help people and use my community to share this — and them with their friends. I collaborate in my music; I want us all to collaborate in this.”

“We know that humanitarian needs are growing and that if we are to meet those rising needs we must do things differently,” said Valerie Amos, UN Humanitarian Chief. “We need more partners and supporters. This campaign is a chance to do just that and we are grateful to David Guetta for lending his voice and talent to this cause.”

The music video was directed by Michael Jurkovac together with advertising agency Leo Burnett New York. It was broadcast in real time through Livestream via Mr. Guetta’s Facebook page. Following the music video’s debut, the building was used as the backdrop for an interactive Twitter wall, becoming the canvas for tweets from around the globe. David Guetta has 47 million Facebook followers and 16 million on Twitter, making him one of the most followed people in the world.

“The World Needs More ____” campaign has been extended until 31 December 2013.

ABOUT THE CAMPAIGN

“The World Needs More__” campaign is a collaborative effort between the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the UN Foundation, the UN Development Programme (UNDP), the International Council of Voluntary Agencies (ICVA), and advertising agency Leo Burnett New York.

Booking photo of MC Hammer (Dublin Police via CNN)

MC Hammer is upset with the cops of northern California. On Saturday, he tweeted about his side of an encounter with a “chubby elvis looking dude” earlier this week. The officer arrested him for obstructing an officer; at the time, Hammer was being questioned for driving a car with expired registration. Hammer claims that the first words out of the officer’s mouth were about whether Hammer was on parole or probation. The indignant Hammer apparently got argumentative, and that never ends well. The performer has enjoyed a slight revival of late, including an electrifying “Gangnam Style”/”Too Legit to Quit” mashup at the American Music Awards with Psy.
