    Heart Patient Risk From iPad2 Found by 14-Year-Old - Bloomberg

    Not sure if posted before.

    Summary: 14 year old student G. Chien discovered that the magnets within the ipad 2 cover has a 30% chance of stopping a defibrillator from working. So please don't hold the ipad 2 close to your heart, because it can literally kill you.

    A defibrillator is a device that's installed in your chest that acts as a pacemaker, used in cases where someone's heart doesn't beat properly (e.g. cardiac disrhythmias).

    That bad news they should call for the ipads and exchange for replacement with less magnetic strength, but it might be to late for such an exchange.
