News Dick Cheney Can Use

After a four-day overseas trip that took him to four countries in the Middle East, Vice President Dick Cheney really wanted to get his iPod charged for that long return flight to Washington.

Since it is his plane, the vice president's iPod took priority and was plugged into one of the only working power outlets on Air Force Two, frustrating reporters who were trying to file stories.

So the bringer of all dark matter in the Universe likes him his Ipod. I am a bleeding heart liberal so I will break the news to the evil one who brings pestulance and death across the globe.
People with implantable pacemakers may want to be cautious when listening to tunes on their iPods. Interference from the portable music player could cause pacemakers to malfunction, a study suggests.

Jay Thaker, a 17-year-old high school student, wondered if iPods cause a similar effect. To find out, he tested iPods on 83 people with pacemakers, with an average age of 77.

When an iPod was held above five centimeters from the chests of the patients for five to 10 seconds, electrical interference was detected in about half of the 800 trials

I want Cheney alive long enough for the trial and conviction so I thought he should know. Oh, he may want to cancel the invitation to Jay Thaker for the bi-annual goat blood orgy at the undisclosed location. Jay likes to experiment on old sick people.

Just saying.
