Never exercise without an iPod

by Erica Sadun

Proof that iPods are indispensible safety equipment:

[She] was wearing only jogging clothes and went unidentified in the hospital for hours until investigators checked out the iPod she was carrying. Using the serial number, traced who it was registered to...Detective Tony Depalma, U.S. Park Police: "First time, I didn't have a lot of knowledge about iPod's but we know more about them now and it was actually very useful."

Why was she in the hospital? If she was out jogging and her iPod was too loud for her to hear to car coming she might have been able to get out of the way and not get hit in the first place. I normally use my iPod at the Gym but it's advised not to use headphones when running/jogging outside. Yes, It's great their were able to I.D. her with the iPod but if the iPod contributed to her getting hit then that kind of nulifies the argument.

What happens if you replaced your iPod motherboard with one from eBay? A case of mistaken identity?
