    Even though the OP is probably a spammer, the best way to stop theft is to be a good buyer. I bought a tibook on ebay from a seller that looked ok. But the laptop came with a full itunes and address book. So I called the owner listed. It turned out the owner was a professor at MIT and he was upgraded. MIT sold his laptop and did not erase it first like he was told they would. I emailed him the pictures from his daughters wedding and had a great talk. Since he forgot about the pictures on the laptop that he didn't transfer, he was really grateful I called.

    This shows how mac users THINK DIFFERENT, and take care of each other.

    It looks like he was able to: "I emailed the pics back to him and had a great chat".

    Mac users are definitely more curtious...they don't have to put up with Windows crap...more time to be nice :D
