Judging from all of these anti-theft innovations, you'd think the only people on this planet were those with sticky fingers. But while you and I might be honest individuals who would never dream of stealing someone else's phone, bike, car or (gasp!) sandwich, knowing what your options are when it comes to protecting your goods is not paranoid -- it's essential.
