    Remember a while back when Steven R. had his ipod confiscated? Well didnt somebody read up that you can have it confiscated if you change the firmware? So, with pwnage and winpwn, if apple sees that you modified your ipod, can they confiscate it?

    No, no iPod can be confiscated by Apple in any way, shape, or form, unless the iPod was used for illegal activities (pwnage not being one of them).

    You can't brick it and they wouldn't reflash a bootloader.
    If you think that you can brick an iPod with Pwnage, don't use it, stop jailbreaking altogether, and get a brain.

    I'm sorry, but how could anyone actually believe that Apple would ever have the right to confiscate your device? Think about it. It is your device. They absolutely have the right not to service it under warranty, or refuse to service it at all if they want, but they can not take it from you! Why would you actually believe that?

    And as far as Stephen's story goes, which I find highly suspicious anyways, the store that supposedly took it from him was an Apple reseller, not an Apple Store. There are no Apple Stores in Ireland yet.
