Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, wireless keyboards and mice - all fine.

The advice can be filed in the round filing tray under 'What our Lawyers make us say.'  It's nonsense.

"6 inches" is the rule of thumb for any electronic device. It doesn't mean you cant touch it. Keep it 6 inches from your pacemaker. It's a lawyerly CYA. Imagine the physical contortions necessary to get your pacemaker within 6 inches of your keyboard while still typing.

The fact is there is virtually nothing that will harm your pacemaker. And practically nothing non-medical that can halt it.

There's a gazillion things in this world that it migh be worthwhile to protect yourself from. Accidental electomagnetic interference with your pacemaker isn't one of them.

Lawyer-speak bedamned. Get out there and live your life!

You know you're wired when...

Your life has spark.
