Some low-down, dirty, rat**** mother****er stole my iPod out of my truck last night, along with the Belkin car-charger I had.
Apple knows the serial number of every iPod sold. They also know serial number of each iPod that has been connected to iTunes (along with the IP address from which the connection to the internet is made). In addition, they have the name, address, and telephone number of everyone who purchases music through iTunes.
So why the **** doesn't Apple have the ability to do anything when someone reports their iPod stolen? They should easily be able to maintain a list of serial numbers from stolen iPods and ensure that, at the very least, anyone in possession of that iPod is able to obtain music or other services from iTunes. At the very most, they should be reporting users who attempt to attach stolen iPods to their computers and iTunes to the police.
I know, I know. There are so many of these things that it'd be a major hassle for any law-enforcement office to do anything about it. That's not the point. The point would be that maybe these things wouldn't be such hot commodities if they were trackable in a way similar to cell-phones.
I am so ****ing pissed I could ****.
