I just read about a lawsuit filed against Apple stating that the iPod can damage your hearing and that Apple has not done enough to protect against it.
I kinda agree. But not for the reasons stated in the article.
The iPod has the crappiest volume control in the world. When you're in a menu, you can't change the volume. So, if a quiet song ends and a loud song starts, you get a blast of loud sound in your skull. you can pause it, or rip the ear buds out of your ears, but my contention is reaching for that non-existant volume control would be my impulse reaction.
I sure hope that comes up during the lawsuit. It's silly to not have a volume knob on the iPod.
