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.
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.
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.

Exactly what I was going to say deejay! Just wait, they'll eventually add that to the list of "Evils of Jailbreaking" along with low birth weight in babies and global warming
When asked what he would say to the columbine killers, Marilyn Manson said, "I would say nothing to them. I would listen to what they have to say, because that's what nobody else did" from the movie Farenheit 9/11

You probably will not be able to travel on any airlines now if you are carrying a iphone because of it being a possible explosive .

Apple will likely just blame the incident on the owner of the iPhone and try to sweep this under the rug, can't have any of the easily impressionable consumers thinking that it doesn't "just work"

guys the iphone is blue???? maybe he changed the original case to blue and when putting back the parts pinched the lipo battery and eventually led to fire.
thats my theory dear sherlocks
