Well, it was bound to happen: A California man is suing Apple because he says the company didn't warn him that using their iPod to pipe extremely loud music directly into his ear canal could possible have an affect on his hearing. We can only imagine what will happen when he realizes that leaving the headphones in 24 hours a day causes them to graft on to your ears, turning you into a half-human cyborg. I smell class action!
The kicker is that the iPod manual does in fact warn customers about the potential for permanent hearing loss if the player’s earphones are used a high volume -- but the complaint alleges that Apple "did not specify what constituted a high volume." Thus future versions of the manual will include the phrase, "loud enough to keep you from hearing the crickets chirping in your empty head, you &%$#! moron."
