... people just might learn to stop blaming others for their own problem.

Not likely, they'll just keep appealing it until some dumbass bleeding heart liberal judge gets hold of the case and actually judges in their idiot favor.

The iPhone OS also has a feature which allows for a volume cap that can be locked. I'm not sure if this can be adjusted for other iPods through iTunes but it certainly is a nice feature on the iPhone/iPod. It's not like there aren't any volume settings/buttons on these devices otherwise. Even the new shuffle doesn't have built in buttons but the ear-buds that come with it do control the volume. Oh well. As long as idiots roam the world, we can always be sure to find new and amazingly frivolous lawsuits.

I've always wondered if I could sue Sonic for brain freeze.

any speaker or headphone has the possibility to give you hearing loss.  maybe they shouldnt have turned up the volume all the way on their ipods and gave themselves hearing loss.  i agree with the guy who sed its like sueing the manufacturer of ur car cuz u got in an accident..its also like all the fat people who are suing fast food restaurants cuz theyre fat..take a little responsibility for yourselves.

And we're fat because we spend all our time in front of a computer monitor.

FYI: I'm not fat. (yet!)

Mighty BOB!

Reminds me of the Futurama episode "Spanish Fry."

 

Bigfoot ... Endangered
Mystery!

In the dense forests
of the Pacific Northwest dwells the strange and beautiful creature known as Bigfoot,
perhaps. 
Sadly, logging and human settlement today threaten what might possibly
be his habitat. Although if it's not, they don't. Bigfoot populations
require vast amounts of land to remain elusive in. They typically dwell just behind rocks but are also
sometimes playful, bounding into thick fogs and out-of-focus areas.
Remember, it's up to us. Bigfoot is a crucial part of the ecosystem, if
he exists. So let's all help keep Bigfoot possibly alive for future
generations to enjoy unless he doesn't exist. The end!

That would like sueing a car manufacturer like Dodge, or Toyota because you got in a wreck.  If you blast the iPod at full volume or louder than normal what do you expect to happen?  Better hearing? lol what a tard.

 I'd say more like sueing them for allowing you to speed and getting in a wreck  Just because it can does not mean you should.

If you don't want hearing loss, turn down the frackin volume. Some people are retards. You can have hearing loss with any headphones, speakers, etc.
