Apple Update Limits iPod Volume

Apple has released software that limits the volume on an iPod.  While this is not in direct response to a lawsuit filed against the company earlier by a man who claims that the warnings about hearing loss are not adequate, the prospect of hearing loss with prolonged use of any loud noise is real.  The software caps the volume at 100 db.  Parents can also set the volume and lock it with a code.  The models affected are the Nano and video models.

Stories are at TMCNet, PC Magazine, and the Washington Post.  The iPod Updater software is here (version 1.1.1).
