The survey looks at where people use their iPods, how they use them and what precautions they may take to prevent theft.

It's hoped that the data will help identify where iPod users are in the greatest danger[...]
I love that...
It is once again the same perverse confusion between the "feeling" of insecurity and the reality of the danger. :(

Yep. I'd like to see this survey include the same questions for non-iPod music players.

Street thugs will steal whatever you've got if they choose to rob you. Back in college, I was mugged for a cheap $10 portable cassette player. But that didn't make headline news. When it's an iPod, however, it makes front page news because editors will print anything they think will scare the most people.
