iPhones just keep exploding

A French teenager is the latest person to experience an exploding iPhone. Apparently his girlfriend's Apple phone-cum-bomb made a hissing noise before the screen shattered and flew into the air in pieces.


Last week, a man in the UK contacted Apple about his daughter's exploding iPod Touch. According to The Register, Apple then said it would refund the price of the device in exchange for a confidentiality agreement preventing them from speaking about the incident. (Clearly this didn't go through)


And a Seattle TV station has uncovered at least 15 incidents of people complaining about fire and burn iPod accidents.


The European Commission is now examining iPhones and iPod Touches. Are we looking at a product recall, Apple? Let's hope that touch-tablet is still on the cards.
