Article in today's NYT about a new type of hearing aid called the
"Lyric".

Sounds very interesting.  Apparently it's installed deep in the ear
canal, and volume, on/off is controlled by a magnet.

You leave it in your ear until the battery dies, then you need to go
to a Doc for a new one.

I'm kinda wary about that last part.  Would think the thing would clog
up with wax and all.  Still it's worth watching.

I don't know if the article is online, reply if any questions.
