Teaching one's grandmother to suck eggs

In a truly astonishing research finding, the EU Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks has discovered that cranking up the volume on a 'personal music player' is bad for one's hearing. That they have duplicated research elsewhere does not merit much mockery but this does:

What consumers can do? (sic)

"Personal music player users can already take certain very practical precautions...they can lower the volume manually".

I am *not* making this up.

I look forward to other insights from Brussels.

But how will everyone sat next to you on the tube hear it then? I've always assumed people with it up loud were just providing a public service to those of us who hadn't brought any music with us. They're making a health sacrifice to do so!

There is that, but overheard iPods / Walkpeople etc are nirvana compared to headphone-less mobiles. Hanging - far, far too good for them.
