Another successful device recovery,  this time in Newmarket, Ontario.  A victim of iPod theft gets their device back thanks to GadgetTrak. One of GadgetTrak’s customers purchased a 5 device subscription and had a device to spare, so he installed it on his friend’s iPod. The friend’s iPod was recently stolen at his school.  Within a short amount of time a connection was made and GadgetTrak was able to collect evidence related to who had the device.

The information GadgetTrak collected was provided to school officials who confronted the individual believed to have stolen the iPod based on the GadgetTrak evidence. The iPod suspect was carrying the iPod at the time and the serial number matched the serial number of the device registered with GadgetTrak.  The device was returned too its rightful owner.

Truth In Advertising: eBay Ad For Stolen iPods
Thursday, June 7, 2007

I thought it was pretty funny when this ad appears on Google for eBay when you do a search for “stolen ipods” the text of the ad states ” eBay: Looking for stolen iPods? Find exactly what you want today. “:


At least eBay is being honest…but I am not so sure I would be advertising this fact. I know the ad is appearing as part of an automated AdWords process, but this make one think about the number of stolen iPods that exchange hands via eBay and just how much profit eBay has made form the exchange of stolen iPods, gadgets and other goods.
