No, inductive transfer has been used in a few implanted devices, although supplying the wattage necessary for an LVAD is a challenge. Keeping the coils in place is rather trivial, as these people need to wear accessory belts/vests and external battery packs.

I know of at least one artificial heart manufacturer that was using the technology.

After I got my iPhone 3G the very next software update included a change to the "bar algorithm" that was marketed as "improving user understanding of the signal meter" or somesuch. It was in response to user complaints of low signal strength, and somehow (miraculously) the reception improved... more bars.

So they're rolling back this change?
