I didn't activate mobileme.
My iphone was stolen from my bag in a yoga studio change room a few hours ago.
Called Rogers to freeze service, called apple, and called police to file report. No one seems to be willing to do anything to track it down.
Is there ANY way I can track its whereabouts?

How does an established professional but not well known artist best go about 'exhibiting' a collection of beautiful metal sculptures in Toronto?
Would they have to rent their own space and throw an event?
Do they pitch/apply to various galleries? Which ones?
Asking for a friend! Thanks in advance...I love the green.

Can you recommend an independent insurance broker in Toronto, or alternatively an insurance company with whom you have had good experience, for taking out a tenants' insurance policy? I'd also appreciate any guidance with respect to whether it's a better idea to go with an independent broker, and risk getting stuck with a bad company at a better price, or go with a company with a better reputation even if the insurance costs more.

Is there a charity in Toronto that would pick up a (bedbug-free, lightly-used) double futon couch/bed? We'd like to donate our futon to someone who could use it, but aren't sure who would want it and be able to pick it up.

It's my first trip to Toronto and I'm only here for one more day, so I'm blowing off my conference tomorrow and going downtown. I'm staying at a hotel a couple miles west of York University, so my plan is to take the #35 bus to the Jane St stop on the green line. Where should I get off if I want to find some hip shopping? Where's the Soho of Toronto?
