I'm all for safety. I mean, I don't know if I could live with being permanently deaf. I'd be a lot more calm during arguments because what is there to argue against when I can't even hear them in the first place? Other than that...I wouldn't want me, or anyone for that matter, to become permanently deaf because of music.
It'd be a different story if I-Pods were only for old people...then I would understand why I-Pods can get so loud, but these things are pretty much for all ages. In reality, there's a lot of things that can cause deafness...airplanes, freakin' loud movie theater surround sound, etc..but it makes sense to want to tackle I-Pods. I don't disagree with it.
Besides, I'm sure some nerd would turn around and find a way to bypass the limitation and make the noise even LOUDER. So I guess that if that happened, we'd still end up making our own choices: accept the limitation, or bypass?
