iPodTouch stolen while abroad- best way to recover photos?
As a warning I am a new Mac user and need help!! I am currently abroad and my iPod Touch 4th gen was stolen. I went to iCloud.com to set it as lost/stolen, but since it has not yet connected to the internet, it has not locked. I also can't see my photo stream which I know was turned on my iOS. This was a week ago. I am using my girlfriends Mac which has OS X 10.5.8, so I can't find iCloud on her computer to sync with my Apple ID to retrieve the photos from my camera roll. I really want to recover my photos (hundreds of travel photos) and I don't have $ to buy a new iPod until I return to the states. How do I update her Mac to include iCloud in the System Preferences? Any help is GREATLY appreciated! I feel lost out here in "no-mac-land".

Well, if you have access to a Windows 7 computer, you could try to have it sync your iCloud data. I have a 13'' MBP with a Win 7 bootcamp partition that does just that.
To do it, you need to have Apple's iCloud Control Panel installed on the computer [ get it from here ]. Input your iCloud login/password and check the Photo Stream option from the list. The last 1000 pictures you took with your devices should start syncing in the "Pictures" folder. You can also recover other data too if you are interested
I suspect this would work on previous Windows versions too, but I haven't tried. Anyway, wish you luck with recovering your photos
