My girlfriend and I each had a 60 GB iPod Video 5G. Hers was white and mine was black. They were stolen out of my car about a week ago. I know there's no way to recover these but some questions arose. Do any of you know if Apple can brick these iPods through iTunes if anyone tries to connect with them? It seems to me that if there isn't a way to do this by giving Apple the serial numbers, then there should be. Then again, if that were the case, anyone could just write down the serial number of someone's iPod and just call Apple and have them mess up their iPod through iTunes just to play a joke or seek revenge on them. *sigh* I just wish there were a way I could go back in time and make sure they wouldn't get stolen, or a way I could receive $350 out of nowhere to go buy a new 160 GB iPod. Have any of you ever had your iPods stolen or lost? I'd like to read some of your stories, just so I don't feel so bad about mine being stolen.
