According to the United Press International, a San Francisco man has been arrested for fraud and forgery with an iPod. OMG!
Before breathless hysteria leads some legislator to ban iPods as ID theft tools, pause a moment. Count to ten. Here are other "ID theft tools" that can hold personal information that legislators may want to think about as well:
- My digital camera. I can keep stuff on the SD chip.
- The sushi disk.
- A cardboard box.
- Plastic bags.
- Hard drives. The external kind are particularly evil.
- Anyone with Eidetic memory
