    Okay, so I lost my damn iPod. Like, one second I had it, the next it's totally GONE. I've searched my house for literally HOURS, and it is GONE. Which is why I think somebody should make a little iPod Finding app. Kind of like when you loose your cordless phone and you press the button on the charger that makes it beep like crazy till you find it again.

    Maybe it could run over wifi and you could connect to it from your computer to enable an alarm or something. Obviously I don't know anything about making iPod apps but I really think this would be a wonderful creation. If somebody makes something like this, PLEASE tell me. I miss my little iPod and the fact that I've probably walked passed it hundreds of times now is driving me insane.

    Well I guess that would be a useful idea...But the fact that you've already lost your device..How would you be able to install the "beeping" application so you could find it? Either way if this is made or not, you'd still have to find it by looking around...or retracing your steps.

    Good luck, hope you find it.

    I'm praying for your iPod, it's better lose it in your house than lose it in the taxi...

    Good Luck, and good app idea

    many thanks

    Many thanks for the moral support and words of encouragement. I think that my search will have to be postponed for the rest of the night, I will resume my quest in the morning.

    Meanwhile, somebody who's not in the same time zone as me ought to get started on that app! It could be a blazing success!

    sounds like a good idea but the iPod Touch's Wi-Fi automatically turns off to save power so you'd have to work around that.

    EDIT: and yes i know that you can easily fix the Wi-Fi problem but i figure i might as well say it anyways
