My wife’s uncle works in a military hospital and told me about this. Its pretty amazing. Kevin Garrad (3rd Infantry Division) was on a street patrol in Iraq (Tikrit I believe) and as he rounded the corner of a building an armed (AK-47) insurgent came from the other side.

The two of them were within just a few feet of each other when they opened fire. The insurgent was killed and Kevin was hit in the left chest where his IPod was in his jacket pocket. It slowed the bullet down enough that it did

Another reason why everyone should have an iPod!

Interesting concept. It’s almost like a fix between the iPod Touch and a tablet with a hard drive.

This doesn’t really have much to do with the iPod but id thought I’d throw this out there. I’ve been hearing rumors about a tablet by Apple that is called the iPad, I know not the greatest name. I have been hearing that its is supposed to come out in June. Now for me this is HUGE as I do a lot of graphics work and would love to see one of these built. I do have a tablet right now, but the one from apple would allow me to write/draw directly on the screen, allowing me to see what I’m doing. Yes they do make tablets like this already but they’re extremely expensive. If these things go into production I think they’ll be supporting multi-touch like the iPhone and of course have built in WiFi. If any of you guys have any info on this so called “iPad”. Let us know in your comments.
