Having Heart Surgery? Make Sure Your Doctor Has An iPod

Considering that students and businesspeople have been using MP3s to study a wide variety of subjects ranging from languages to law, is it any wonder that someone came up with the idea of teaching doctors with them?

"iPods are good for your heart - at least they can help doctors make the right diagnosis of the sounds they can hear. Professor Michael Barrett MD at the American College of Cardiology last year launched a project in which the sound of hearts beating were made available to students in MP3 format for their iPods."

If only somebody would clue talent agents into this teaching concept so we wouldn't have to listen to any more pop singers who can't carry a tune.
