Why would I change my password? It's not sitting on a server somewhere for a hacker to attempt a brute force attack. If my phone is stolen tomorrow, how will a new password be more of a challenge than the current one? And when we can remote wipe our phones, why bother with more than a PIN? If you're going to make recommendations about securing phones, I'd like to see a discussion of the practical security benefits.
