writes: The New York times and AP report that Swiss rescue officials found two missing skiers after spotting the light from their MP3 music player. Rega spokesman Gery Baumann says the two men were eventually found after midnight in steep, wooded terrain by a helicopter crew that spotted the light from their digital music player. Baumann said Saturday that the two 22-year-olds suffered only mild hypothermia despite enduring temperatures as low as 5 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 15 degrees Celsius)."
Ok, it doesn't say "iPod" but what else would two 22-year olds cool enough to listen to tunes while freezing to death have? Raises the question as to what's appropriate freezing-to-death music. Maybe those dumb emergency flasher iPod apps aren't so dumb after all.
