Apple Warns that Using Earbuds with iPod or iPhone can be Shocking Experience

Apple has just publicly copped to the fact that you can get a “small and quick electrical (static) shock from your ear buds while listening to iPod or iPhone.” The problem is not specific to the Apple ear bud type of head phones (those headsets that fit into the opening of your ear canal), but rather is specific to iPod and iPhone, and other sorts of MP3 players, and can happen with any brand of earbud.
