I Lost My iPod

you must treat your Ipod like cash. as mp3 players are becoming more and more popular thanks to the Ipod. people arent as surprised of seeing one in public and would love to get thier grubby little hands on one for free. may i suggest a wrist strap that way even if you put it down its still attached. i found myself in the habit of putting it into my pocket whenever i need to pull out my wallet. just watch out with keys or change because your bound to scratch it up.

I Lost My iPod

Hi Kenneth! Man what a sad story. I feel your pain. It’s like losing your pet or companion. I always have my IPOD with me and never let anyone touch it but me. I know how hard it is to lose something so valuable that you’ve paid your hard earned money for. If I still had my IPOD 10gb I would sell it to you but, have sold it to buy the new 30gb. My condolenses.

Updated: Is the backlight supposed to be blue?

Well guys… the white or blue thing is not new… in all Apple’s ads you see powerbooks & iBooks with a blue-light apple logo in the back… mine is definitely white (yellowish even)... i had to open it up & put a blue paper to make it blue…

I Lost My iPod

I lost my iPod when I was in Thailand last month.  I was at the beach, lounging in a beach chair.  The chair was of the paid type, where you pay some guy a dollar to use the chair and an umbrella.  It wasn’t until the next day that I realized I had lost my iPod and I immediately thought of the beach chair.  I rushed back to the spot and asked the people who rented the chair to me.  They didn’t speak a lick of English, but I made some hand gestures and the guy’s eyes lit up in recognition.  Wonder of wonders, they actually had my iPod!!  I’m not sure if they were really honest, or if they just had no idea that they were holding onto something worth a couple months of their salary.  In any case, my story had a happy ending.  I’m sorry yours didn’t.  As for the replacement, wait an extra paycheck if you have to and get the 15gig.  Isn’t an extra 5gig worth a two week’s wait?

Did you register your Pod with Apple before it got lost?  If someone were honest and intent on seeing that the lost Pod gets back to the rightful owner, they could contact Apple with the serial number on the back of the unit and I would think that Apple would try to get in touch with you if the unit were registered.

If you have not registered, I would do that ASAP.  Long shot, but might get lucky, you never know….......

as a citizen of toronto, and knowing the pain of losing something in a cab, ill give you a word of advice: you wont get it back mate. Sorry if it sounds harsh, but its like finding a grain of sand in the atlantic. There are atleast a dozen cab companies, i recommend you go back to the place you tagged it down, and get a list of all the cabs you see ( names of them ), and call the comapnies ASAP.

That might help. If you had a good driver who cares about his customers.

You see, this is why I always label my underwear.

I Lost My iPod

I actually work for a Mac reseller, so I get them at dealer cost. I know the 15 Gig is about the same as the 10 GB plus the accessories. I just want to replace it as soon as possible, and then buy the accesories later. I may get a 15 if my paycheque is big enough.

I have some faith that some people would return it if found. Remember, most non-technical people wouldn’t even know what it is and once the batteries are gone it would be totally useless to most people.

When I called the cab companies to file a report it took me about 2 minutes to describe what it was and what it looked like. The operators had no clue what an iPod was, or an MP3 Player for that matter.

Thanks for the condolances everybody, but this post is more of a public service than a call for pity.

jsmoove7, like I said in the original post I was working for 18 hours mainly doing heavy lifting getting our new store ready for opening. When I got in the cab at 3:00 AM I was barely awake. Under normal circumstances I know where my iPod is at all times. Under those exhausting circumstances I slipped for a split second. It cost me my iPod. I think most people are like us, very careful but we are all capable of a brief lapse and that’s why I recommend the labeling. I am glad to hear you are so careful with yours and I hope noboidy else loses their iPod.

Thanks again, everybody.

Sorry `bout your loss…“I feel your pain.” Thinking….How about a future enhancement to “brand” the ipod’s firmware/cmos or lock via password etc. the ipod in some way to which the ipod would “phone home” whenever it was connected to the net via itunes/driver etc, as well as making it unusable… This might be a good way to trackdown a srupulous ipod thief or, atleast make it unusable.  Intern having a message of some sort to drop it in a mailbox, with the apples address on it postage paid via apple. Then you could be able to get it back simmilar to lost keys or cellphone… If it was registered… Just an idea.

Can’t afford it? It’s only a $100 extra. Go to Best Buy (Do they have those in Canada?) and use the no interest payments for 6 months option, and pay $60 bucks a month.

i feel sorry for his loss, but i’m one who would never sit my 30 gig $499 investment down anywhere in public but in my pocket or carry case.  even when i let others hold it to look at or listen to, its never out of my sight.

Label it? Do you think people on this earth are honest enough to actually contact you once they find a free iPod for themselves?

They’ll probably rip off the sticker and keep it for themselves…

I Lost My iPod

my e-mail adress and my name are engraved wink

And just a little tip:
i wanted to buy the 10 GB iPod and order the dock and remote, but all together, that would have been almost the same price as the 15 GB iPod with dock, remote and case included, so i ordered the new 15 gig…

Check the prices !

wink

good idea, some people may not be clever enough to find the notes, or even think of looking in them

Posted by Losimagic in UK on May 30, 2003 at 11:20 PM (PDT)

Another way to label your iPod is to write a small textfile with your name and address and store it as a note.

sadly in todays world, you’d be very lucky if it got returned, even with a label on it :(

Updated: Is the backlight supposed to be blue?

Mine is having a battery issue as well. After a charge, the battery level keeps fluculating and its being sent back first of next week.
