The investigation follows reports from Britain, France, Holland and Sweden that some digital music players and mobile phones have spontaneously combusted in the sunshine.

One French teenager claims to have been injured when his girlfriend's iPhone apparently exploded into pieces after starting to "crackle and pop".


Has anyone Heard of this, or has it happened to you?

Don't keep electronics in direct sunshine.

This isn't news. Nokia have been 'accidentally' releasing chargers that cause batteries to explode every few years for ages now.

This kinda puts a damper on the whole "Apple/The iPhone is totally perfect and really cool" bit that all the elitists spew all the time.

Kinda hard to be edgy and environmentally aware when your phone just exploded in your face.

Happened a couple years back with Apple laptops, I got a letter saying the batteries were faulty and a few had exploded so they shipped me a new one.

Plus, rocks don't explode.
Well, unless they're being fired out of a vocano, some of those rocks do.

Actually, the new iPhones record video, and there are many more things both a rock and an iPhone can do.

I also have hairy butt cheeks, I once shaved a letter 'W' on each cheek, so that when I bent over it spelled WoW.

Uhm, that would be the 3GS, not the 3G.

I was about to post this. My mum has an iPhone that she somehow managed to crack the screen of, I wonder if she'd get away with saying it cracked in the heat but she managed to cool it down and stop it from exploding.

It's happening often enough to warrent investigation so...

Apparently, Apple tried to gag several people who had that happen, by making media silence on it a condition of getting a refund.

My mate said that it's company policy and that most companies do the same.

Obviously;

Companies been doing that for ages, where have you been?

I got weird **** in my cornflakes a few years back, and I wrote a letter, and they sent like a year free of cornflakes and a big excuse letter.

My friend sent a fake letter to a chocolate company in the netherlands, and they sent him like 200 euro's worth of chocolate.

Hmm I dunno why this is big news, didn't it state it in the disclaimer?

Most disclaimers of electronic stuff state;

"Do not hold electronics in the sun or direct sun light or it can break or might explode"

or sometimes;

"Do not keep it in areas with a temperature of "x" degrees or it might explode"

That's just a standard complaint about something being a bit rubbish, like me milking London Midland for all the free rail vouchers I can get because they can't run their trains on time. Those are just minor issues - A phone exploding is a bit more newsworthy than your chocolate tasting a bit wank.

That's not the same as "you're not getting a refund if you tell the press our product exploded".
