We’ve probably all heard the recent press about some audiologists alerting the world that listening to your iPod (or any other portable music player, for that matter) too loud for too long will cause hearing loss. Now, someone is suing Apple because they don’t put warnings on the iPod about this fact.

But wait a minute… “Patterson does not know if the device has damaged his hearing, said his attorney…”

So… if he hasn’t actually experienced hearing loss, how does he have legal standing in this matter?

Oh… because the iPod could be turned up by the user to a potentially dangerous volume it’s somehow “defective”, and therefore he is entitled to a iPod that maxes out at an undisputedly safe volume. Riiiiiight…

Four words: Boot to the Head.

Nitrozac has also posted a step-by-step carving tutorial so we can make our own Mac-O-Lanterns to enjoy this Halloween.
