iPods Save Lives

There is some usefulness to iPods, outside of playin’ tunes.

Here’s a wild photo of an iPod which took a bullet for a soldier in Iraq.

According to the post, the soldier (Kevin Garrad, we’re told) faced off against an insurgent with an AK-47. Both fired, just a few feet from each other, and a bullet hit the soldier’s chest pocket, holding his iPod. The iPod helped slow the bullet so that it didn’t penetrate his body armor, and probably saved his life. The insurgent had no iPod protection and didn’t fare as well.
