    I bought a new macbook pro in July and got a free ipod touch. (woo!) Unfortunately, it was stolen from my purse while I was at work. I have no idea who took it, or if it was sold after that. It sucks that it is gone and that I have no ipod now, but I know there is no way to get it back. What I am worried about is the info that i had in it, namely my email. Could the 'new owners' of my ipod get at that? And is there any way to stop it? Thanks!

    Hmmm...I could be wrong but the only way to track it/Erase stuff off it remotely is through MobileMe (I don't know because the iPod lacks a GPS).

    You can sign onto your email on your MacBook and change your password. Unfortunately, you can't do much once its out of hands :( . If you ever get another iPod touch, maybe put a passcode on it to prevent info from being stolen.

    Definitely change all your passwords and set the password for the next one.

    You can also report the serial number to Apple, but I don't know how vigilant they are about such things.

    Lighting should strike to those who know they do wrong. I'm being serious. After seeing one being burnt to a crisp, it will prevent others from creating evil crimes, whether stilling ipods or murder. to me its all wrong!
