Did You Hear About First Aid via iPhone?

Wired Magazine online had a story that was too cool to pass by without checking out: Man Buried in Haiti Rubble Uses iPhone to Treat Wounds, Survive – yeah!

I checked it out and was amazed by several things:

  • they have cell phone service in one of the piss-poorest countries in the world
  • the iPhone was undamaged after “being crushed by a pile of rubble”
  • the phone was charged enough to last 65 hours while sounding an alarm over 180 times
