iPods & Pacemakers: On a Collision Course?

A real interesting story in Friday's Free Press ("Music's Beat or Beating Heart?"), linked above. Research presented in Denver on Thursday reported that portable music players like iPods can cause heart pacemakers to malfunction. The study involved doctors from MSU and U-of-M, and was led by a 17-year-old high school student from Okemos, MI, who is the son of a doctor specializing in heart care.
