    The "Find my iPhone/iPad" feature is great but if I'm correct doesn't it need a wifi connection or a gps chip for it to work? In that case making it useless if you lost your iPod touch or iPad. Unless it happened to be lost in range of a wifi area! ::confused:

    Scenario:

    Someone finds it. They access it, then when playing with it, they access a nearby WAP.

    The better feature, for business users, at least, is "Remote Wipe." The likelihood of recovering a stolen or lost iPad is next to nil.
