    My iPod touch is set to sync with mobile me and has e-mail and stuff on it (nothing confidential or anything) but it can recieve e-mail as it is also mapped to my gmail account. Is there anything I need to do as far as mobile me is concerned to protect my information. Any advice? Thanks!

    Well, the best thing to do first would be change your password ;).

    Passwords changed.

    Is there anything to gain by reporting it stolen to apple or anything to that affect?

    well i dont know if apple would do this but they could try search for the mac address of that model or serial of that ipod touch that got stolen if it ever goes online or what not. but pretty much you'll probably never see it ever again unless you got connections with the FBI

    Not really. I've heard that Apple's policy is to ignore *stolen* flags even if the thief brings the iPod into the store for repairs.

    Thanks guys.

    I guess I've done all I can do. Hopefully changing all my passwords was enough.
