If thereis any doubt that Appleis ostensibly ubiquitous iPod has fully penetrated our culture, perhaps this story from CNet News will settle the issue. According to the article, a group of car thieves apparently had a need to carry around a lot of data, possibly because the ring rakes in some US$1.8 million. It seems that scientists and academics arenit the only ones who think of the iPod as more than a music player.
Police estimate that other members of the gang, who have yet to be caught, made off with 70 cars worth more than $1.8 million (1 million pounds) during their 10-month spree.
The gang attracted the attention of a local police officer by parking all the cars outside of a housing project. When the police raided one of the menis houses there, they discovered a range of documents stored on an iPod, including forged letters claiming the cars were paid for.
