Apple Announces Volume Protection

Presumably in response to the lawsuits contending that iPods go too loud and can hurt the listener's ears, Apple announced today a software update for the newest iPods and the iPod Nano that will permit parents to set a maximum volume, or for ordinary listeners to set a maximum for themselves, protected by a combination code.

“As the leading provider of digital music players, Apple continuously brings iPod customers innovative and easy to use solutions,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide iPod Product Marketing. “With the increased attention in this area, we want to offer customers an easy to use option to set their own personal volume limit.”
