Ipod for tracking?

Can you track someone's movement by using his/her Ipod? Apparently Yes. It is a disturbing thought isn't it? To have the ability to be spied upon through your Ipod?

If you don't beleive me, Watch this CNN report here

Scary thought about tracking.

@barani >> Yes very true. Good to know that there are smart people always on the lookout for loopholes and problems.

@ashish >> Yes it is a scary thought.

Anything wireless has the potential to be tracked. Not surprising that these can be tracked as well.

@@Bharath >> An interesting observation. I was not really aware of the same. And if that is the case, that does make me nervy. But I think majority of the people that includes me are not aware of the fact that this can be done...And this report made me realise that....

Couldn't read the report as link wouldn't open.
But I have similar thoughts and even did a post on the same issue recently!

@Usha >> You were not able to watch the video since the report is more than 7 days long. It just described the way by which an Ipod can be used to track a person provided he had another electronic kit with him and this was found by some kids in the university. And as usual no comments from Apple on the same.
