Apple iPhones explode in France

Jobs Mob told to come clean


The French
press has been focusing on cases of exploding iPhones in a desperate bid to make Apple come clean about the problem. The French have found ten new cases of "exploding iPhones" and have forced consumer groups to call for Apple to face an official inquiry and clean over possible risks.

Ten French consumers have now come forward saying their iPhone screens exploded without explanation and in once case an iPod caused an eye injury [surely that should be iInjury. Ed].

Apple has been trying to hush up 15 cases of iPod music players heating up and bursting into flames in the United States and in the UK. Apparently the trick is to threaten the customer and force them to sign a NDA. Since most Apple fanboys are sheep and will sign what they are told, the real numbers of exploding iPods and iPhones could be much higher.

Apple has been defending its products before the European Union this month, insisting the exploding screen cases were "isolated incidents". This an interesting argument given that a machine gun produces a number of isolated incidents and if it fires enough of these isolated incidents it can cut a man in half.

France's official competition, consumer affairs and fraud watchdog, the DGCCRF, has launched an investigation to find out whether the Apple smartphone is dangerous. France's consumer rights group, UFC-Que Choisir, also called on Apple to come clean about possible faults with its iPod and iPhone devices. Good luck with that.
