    Ok imagine this scenario, you're a spy on a secret mission, you feel safe knowing that if your ipod gets stolen all of your secret codes/information stored in the notes app are protected by your four digit PIN entered when sliding to unlock. But, your ipod gets stolen by (insert evil name here) who takes it back to his house plugs it into itunes lets it start syncing and then slides to unlock bypassing the PIN.

    Ok i know that most likely this will never happen but i'd like to think my ipod was more secure than that, i mean seriously, if all the robber has to do is plug it into his itunes there might as well be no point in having a PIN...

    Yes, mine is usually synced to my computer but when i plug it in my laptop (unauthorized) the thing which tells you its syncing stays on the ipods screen the whole time you are trying to authorize, so at anytime you can just slide and bypass the password/PIN

    even so, you could use quickpwn and then use Total Commander + t-pot and bingo.

    apple did that on purpose in case you forget, and you can download many programs for notes etc, which password protect your stuff (i have video safe and love it, password protects pictures and videos i put into it) i know there are note apps like this too, so bam, you're saved

    That's why I have Lockdown installed. There's an eight-digit passcode on any application that either gives access to system files or contains personal data.
