Volume control for iPod

Apple Computer, which has sold more than 42.2 million iPod players since October 2001, released software that lets parents set the volume on the music devices to protect their children’s hearing.
The software is available now as a free download, Apple said. The iPod is the world’s best-selling personal music player.
Apple is offering the software two months after Rep. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) asked the National Institutes of Health to investigate possible hearing problems associated with the music players. Most can produce sounds at as many as 120 decibels, as loud as an ambulance siren, and prolonged exposure to 90 decibels may cause some hearing loss, according to the Mayo Clinic’s Web site.
