According to a recent study, iPod could kill pacemaker holders, you can see more information and .

It seems that only elderly people could face that problem, and fortunately they are not the core customers of iPod, but what about iPhone?

  1. I have some trouble believing that the iPod was the only thing that would disrupt pacemakers. Even there, I have trouble it would do anything at all. All they tell you is that when the iPod is close, the pacemaker gets disturbed or stops working. They don’t say why, or any evidence. “I just does”

    Interesting nonetheless

  2. WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!

    That is so crazy!!!!!!! The iPod is like a PC(“mac”) it’s got a HD a that’s about it. It dos not have WI.FI or any Radio type of frequency that can interferer with a pacemaker. IT IS COMPLETELY RIDICULES!!! It is the same as with the mobile phone!!!! And well if so then… It was fun!! But I ant goanna put my iPod away!!! It’s probably so “zone-idiot” that thought it up!!!

  3. It’s not that big of a deal. Actually cell phones risk disrupting pacemakers already. When I had my pacemaker implanted I was advised to keep my phone 6 inches away from the device (basically only use it with my right ear). While we were previously told ipods did not pose a risk at all, I now am told to keep my ipod away from the device. Just keep the iphone 6 inches away from the device and pacemaker patients should be fine.

  4. Okay… cell phones are banned in hospitals because they mess with the devices. That is all cell phones and I’m sure the Iphone isn’t excluded in this… however, didn’t I just see an article somewhere that said the cell phones don’t affect the equipment in hospitals? People don’t know and can’t say how any wavelengths between two devices are going to work!
