    iPhone ICU virus causes seizures????
    Well this is an interesting article I came across today. If it is accurate how would a text message cause a seizure? Flashing lights is all I could think of for those susceptible to them.

    This was the only article I could find on this ICU virus issue but it is dated today so it might be too new??

    LOL, Lisa. You need to read something else. Yes, flashing lights can cause seizures and so can high pitch noises - I've seen that occur at a nursing home my wife and I volunteer at; but an iMessage that says iCu? Well, I suppose if you read it on the internet it must be true.

    Happy New Year!

    I didn't believe the seizure claims but it was interesting.

    Happy New Year!
