The Apple iPod is more than just a well-designed MP3 and video player. It's also a life-saver. The above photo shows a 'Pod that might have saved the life of Kevin Garrad, a U.S. Infantryman in Iraq.

Garrand's fourth-generation iPod was blasted by a 7.62mm bullet fired by an Iraqi insurgent. The bullet went clear through the MP3 player, but didn't penetrate his Kevlar armor. Maybe the iPod slowed the bullet just enough to save the guy's life.
