Apple reportedly said South Korean citizens will not be eligible for compensation in its iPod battery settlement.

iPods have “become the tool of choice for some fraudsters who use them to download vast quantities of corporate information either to sell to rivals or to support their own start-up operations,” reports The Guardian.
