Use of an Apple iPod or similar USB device to illicitly copy information from a computer. The high data capacity of current devices and the convenience of USB ports makes it easy to
surrepticiously copy large amounts of data.
Note that although Apple's iPod gave rise to the term, many devices apart from MP3 players provide USB storage which can be used to copy files, including digital cameras, mobile phones, PDA's, and even wrist watches.
