  • Apple Investigating Exploding iPhones
    On Tuesday European Commission officials reported that Apple is investigating the reports of exploding iPhones. Apple is claiming that the exploding iPhone issues are isolated and not a general problem.

    According to European Commission spokeswoman Helen Kearns
    Apple have come back to us ... and what they've said to us is that they consider these are isolated incidents. They don't consider that there's a general problem.
    An Apple Europe Ltd. spoksman said
    We are aware of these (media) reports and we are waiting to receive the iPhones from the customers. Until we have the full details, we don't have anything further to add.
    This comes after recent various reports of iPhones exploding the most recent from a teenager in France who claimed that he was injured when his iPhone made a hissing noise and shattered.

    There are no specifics concerning which generation of iPhone Apple is investigating as this issue stems back at least the the iPhone 3G when an iPhone owner was burned by his device.

      That's weird. Maybe Apple designed an iPhone that would explode if jailbroken. I'm just glad it doesn't apply to the iPod touch.

      They probably overclocked their iPhone too high.

      I wouldn't be so sure this the truth guys. We've all seen people make just about anything up just to stir up the media.

      I know it's been said but here's some fine tuning for apple's advertising. "what about if you want to find a place to eat but aren't sure what sounds good? Urbanspoon opens up. What if you are tired of your friend constantly asking to use your phone over and over and wish you make him catch fire and no longer have to worry about having the coolest phone of your friends? Phone blows up and kills person's friend....there's am app for that!"

      If the iphone was jailbreaked you are not going to receive nothing. That's the excuse they are going to take, it happened because you modified your iphone. And they are going to put you in jail because you are a drug dealer, because remember... Jailbreaked iPhones are for drub dealers. Hehehe you can expect anything from Steve.

      "jailbroken"! the adjective form of "break" is "broken" and the past tense is "broke"
      It's not jailbreaked, please and thank you
      I have little annoyances that don't make a difference in the world but make a huge difference to me.
