How does Find My iPod work?
I've just enabled the "Find My iPod" option in the iCloud Settings page.
The iCloud web service has pinpointed my location twice, using two different Wi-Fi networks, to within a meter or two.
The device has neither a GPS unit nor a 3G connection. How can this process be so precise, assuming Apple doesn't have access to every ISP's database of IP addresses & clients' physical addresses?

@chown33: Does this mean that if I physically move a wifi access point to another location, "Find My iPod" would display the older address until someone from Skyhook drives by again?
