iPod \"explodes\"

Fire investigators are probing a that burned a hole in the bed of a Melbourne teenager who tried to repair his damaged Apple iPod. The boy was treated by paramedics at his Bayswater home for breathing difficulties after ingesting fumes emitted by the device as he pulled it apart in his suburban bedroom on Wednesday. Country Fire Authority spokesman Peter Philp said the leaky iPod had been taken away for testing by CFA investigators. "His mother did the washing and the iPod was in the clothing so it went through the washing machine [...] It wasn't working, the young fella tried to undo it or fix it with a screwdriver [...] It was more smoke than fire but it did leave a burn mark on the cover."

    I am waiting to see how this will be blamed on Apple....computer company markets dangerous device......I guess they'll have to put a warning sticker on it "caution do not fully submerse"
