NYPD has developed a etching program to track stolen iPods

In light of the ever increasing iPod thefts that have taken place on subways, the New York City police department has launched a new program where you can register and track your iPod. The New York Daily News reports: “Under the iPod etching program, cops are using invisible ink to mark the mini-music machines—as well as cell phones, BlackBerries and other electronic devices—so they can return lost or stolen items to their rightful owners and connect with potential prosecution witnesses.” The NYPD police are offering this free service at various Transit Bureau offices, and have set up table through out the entire subway system where devices can be marked. About 2100 iPods were registered during last three month.
