NEW RESEARCH by a hospital in Boston has shown that hearing loss is on the up for teenagers – and suggests that the era of the personal stereo and iPod is to blame.

The findings, which compared two nationally representative surveys from the United States, showed that the rate of hearing difficulties in today’s teens is 31% higher in 2005 to 2006 then it was between 1988 and 1994.

Almost one in five teenagers now complain that they can’t discern words in whispered conversations, or hear leaves rustling in the distance.

While most of the hearing loss was mild, it is implied that the ‘Era of Earphones’ – the prevalence and increasing affordability of the personal stereo and later the MP3 player – is to blame, with overexposure to loud noises a key factor in the problems.

Girls were found to be significantly less likely than boys to demonstrate any loss of hearing – possibly suggesting that the louder genres of music typically favoured by young men could be to blame.

The report says:

Some risk factors, such as loud sound exposure from listing to music, may be of particular importance to adolescents.

Though it imposes limits on the volume that devices sold in Europe can produce, the European Commission warns that one in ten 30-year-olds could be wearing a hearing device within ten years because they listen to music at excessive volumes.

Indeed, Britain’s Royal National Institute for Deaf People found that two thirds of earphone wearers listen to music at a volume louder than the suggseted European limit.

Surveys show that more than 90% of teenagers in the western world use MP3 players – of which the iPod is the bestselling model – and often for several hours a day at maximum volume.

Hearing experts have recommended the ’60-60′ rule: that iPod owners avoid listening to no more than 60 minutes at a time, and at 60% of maximum volume.

DO YOU KNOW what your iPhones been up to?

Tech site Gizmodo is reporting that Apple iPhones are vulnerable to an attack that may give hackers complete control of your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. The hack is said to affect the iPad and all devices running the iOS 3.1.2 and higher.

The Press Association is reporting an official security warning  from a German government agency who say the system has”two critical weak points for which no patch exists”

Hackers can gain control of your phone when you click on PDF links in your browser. A font within the PDF causes stack overflow, a technical condition that allows the secret ninja code inside the font to gain complete control of your device. The hack is similar to the hack used to jailbreak an iPhone.

If this is successful, the hacker will have complete access to your phone allowing them to delete files, transmit files, install programs and monitor your actions. A similar problem occurred with TIFF files when the iPhone launched but the bug was later fixed. Up to 100m devices could be affected.

Gizmodo says the safest way to avoid the hack is by not downloading PDF files from untrusted sources.

Only a few months ago Apple suffered a security breach with the iPad and an antenna problem with the iPhone 4, while there are also problems with the iPad overheating.
