What's that you say?? My iPod is too loud.

Recently Apple has been sued because iPods can go up to 120 decibles (dbA).Sometimes I think that people are just looking for a high profile case to attach their name to. The lawsuit being filed by John Kiel Patterson contends Apple’s iPod is "inherently defective" in its design and can contribute to hearing loss. Steve W. Berman, an attorney for Patterson, was quoted as saying "Patterson does not know if the device has damaged his hearing. But that's beside the point of the lawsuit, which takes issue with the potential the iPod has to cause irreparable hearing loss"

It has the POTENTIAL to cause hearing loss. Well let me get the facts right.. since the iPod has the technical ability to go up to 120 dbA they should be sued. Okay well how about sueing babies all over the world. The average baby's cry is at 110 dbA. Since its Super Bowl weekend, we should sue them. The average noise in a football stadium is 117 dbA.

According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, the maximum exposure time at 85 dBA is 8 hours. At 110 dBA, the maximum exposure time is one minute and 29 seconds.

So by those standards we can only attend 1 minute & 29 seconds of the Super Bowl per day.
