I hope you're not eating right now: A Zune owner is suing Microsoft for injuries he sustained from using his mp3 player, saying that the headphones shocked him and now he experiences bleeding and "fluid leakage" from the ears (!!!). When I stopped gagging and shuddering, I remembered other infamous iPod and cell phone-related injuries. For instance, I know to avoid electrical storms, because of the Colorado kid who was struck by lightning while wearing his iPod and ended up with damaged hearing and burns from the headphone cords.
Aside from dropping an iPod (a 2nd-generation 30GB) on my toe, I have never suffered a gadget-related injury. What about you guys? Tell me your geek pain stories!
