Where the hell do these people come from? http://msnbc.msn.com/id/11164026/ Is he new? It's not like this is 1980 and it's the first Walkman ever put out. What the hell ever happened to personal responsibility? This is probably the same guy that would launch a lawsuit if Apple did govern the sound levels at 100db. It isn't news that if you turn up the volume on an iPod it gets louder, but you know what? If you turn it down it gets quieter. I mean if he turned it up and little daggers pierced his eardrums, then sure, that isn't exactly the expected behaviour - sue away!
I would love to see a lawsuit against him, for infantilization of a nation. It is people like him that have caused manufacturers to label jars of peanuts with 'may contain nuts' and warn us that our coffee will be hot. *grumble*, *sputter*
I need coffee.
