The newest medical tool: an iPod

How's this for convergence? Radiologists at UCLA (Go Bruins!) have figured out an excuse a way to use iPods in their medical practice. Their (free!) product is called OsiriX and helps to manage medical images on the iPods hard drive.

Now if only some bright person could come up with a medical application that primary care doctors could use on an iPod, then I'd have an excuse, uh, I mean, justification to buy one of those little guys. Besides listening to music, that is. C'mon, Epocrates! Port your drug reference over to the iPod, and you are guaranteed an instant market.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year!
