After the Nintendo and Blackberry thumbs, some eager scientist has found a new scapegoat for our weak arm and finger muscles.
The British Chiropractic Association (BCA) has issued an official warning against the iPod and other media players.
At risk are: "Music mad consumers who are constantly using the scroll-wheel or buttons on their MP3 players to organise their song library, update playlists and adjust the volume of their favourite artists."
There is a slight problem in that users will have to be extreme iPod junkies to be affected by this ailment. Most users will spend far more time behind their computers and game computers than they would using their iPods.
Blaming this on the iPod seems more like a cheap PR move. Much like the guy who found a security flaw in Windows and chose to associate it with Google Desktop for added PR value.
iPod finger in the making.
