I've learned that simply by adding an Exchange-based email account to my iPod's Mail app, I am implicitly allowing the administrator of the email system to remotely wipe all data from my iPod -- even though neither the (sparse) documentation nor the user interface seems to warn of this.
I don't find this acceptable, so I simply read my Exchange mail through the web interface. No problem.
Are there other apps or services which implicitly allow other people to remotely wipe my iPod? For example, if I add a Gmail account to the Mail app, am I granting the ability for a Google action (intentional or otherwise) to wipe my iPod? If I use the Facebook app, does Facebook have the ability to wipe my iPod?
