AppleInsider has been all over the Leopard—Apple's latest operating system—and the features that it may include. The good news for Apple computer-using iPoders is that Leopard will include mapping software similar to Google Maps and Microsoft Virtual Earth that may eventually employ GPS tracking software to keep a watchful eye on iPods and other Apple products.

This could be some useful functionality with iPod theft on the rise every day. There is probably only one way to prevent iPod theft that I am considering—until Leopard is released, of course. Just get the iPod permanently embedded into your body. You carry it around all hours of the day anyway, why not just get it surgically attached? Leopard, which is tentatively named, will make its formal debut at WWDC on August 7.
