How many? Tom Smith of InfoWeek was at InterOp in NYC this past week and heard this:

Most startling stat I heard: One New York-based financial services firm loses
one laptop per day and five smartphones per day in taxicabs, says John Pironti,
chief information risk strategist for the consulting firm Getronics. A common
outcome: The cab companies sell off the gear after 30 days. How that's for risky

I'm guessing the smartphones are at least password-protected, and hope the laptops are at least that (they should be encrypted on the hard drive, too).
