    It's good that the engraving actually worked.

    Smart, this is what iPod engraving should be for IMO, but I'm just careful with my iPod, never leaves my pocket (and I'm one of these people who would know if I got pick-pocketed).

    How? (serious question) some of these guys are pro's, you'll never know until you go for the thing that's been lifted.

    I'm one of those people that will never ever get into a car accident. I'm smarter than that.

    So this guy just pulled out a stolen iPod to show to the cops? Pro or no pro, he definitely doesn't seem to have the slightest sense.

    Yeah really. Some pick pocketers are really good. They can take your stuff without you noticing. I saw thing on Discovery channel a while back on it.
