    Let's say some one stole your ipod......

    And when the bastard pluggs it in his computer, BAM! the ipod sends the IP adress and other information of the person that took it.
    And the ipod would lock itself and demand a password to function, and when it loggs on an wifi hotspot and the software finds out that its missing

    No it doesent stop global warming and all problems in the world

    That would be hard to make.
    But it would definitely be useful.

    when logging on the internett

    the same way as the "installer" app searces look's updates, it would find out when logging on the server to the app.


    i had this kind of system on my PSP and it was great.
    got soda on it and killed it though

    There is a website which offers this service for gadgets. It's called www.gadgettrak.com. Only problem is, it supports all iPod models apart from iPod Touch.

    Perhaps it wouldn't have to. Maybe the program could just "ping home" each time it's connected to the internet. In the pings, could be th city, address,IP address and ISP, which could be logged on the home pc. Or perhaps the software could be dormant, or deactivated until set of by software that's on the home pc. If your Ipod is stolen, just hit "Find" in the software, and the next time the ipod logs onto the net, your hope pc pulls in the info..

    Cool Idea

    great idea it should be better if the person plugs into there comp.itunes will say it will require a password to go in
    bec ppl dont only use 1 comp
    thats y
    and he canot access the ipod now unless he enters the password
    so the ipod will say wwhen he slides to open please type in password in itunes and it like disables it
    ps
    its better the the passcode on it now
    but apple has to do it
