    iPod Sets Man's Pants On Fire

    Now I know where NOT to put my iPod...

    ATLANTA -- The new iPod Nano is hot. But one Douglasville man said his old Nano got even hotter -- hot enough to burst into flames.

    "So I look down and I see flames coming up to my chest," said Danny Williams.

    Williams said the burn hole from the pocket of his pants marks the spot of his 15 seconds of flame. He said he had an iPod Nano and an glossy piece of paper in his pocket. He believes the paper shielded him from being burned.

    "I'm still kind of freaked out that after only a year and a half my iPod caught fire in my pocket," said Williams.

    The iPod uses a lithium ion battery -- the same type of battery under recall for setting laptops on fire.

    Williams said the fact is iPod Nano burst into flames while he was at work was bad enough, where he works could have been another issue. He works at a kiosk in Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

    "If TSA had come by and seen me smoking, they could have honestly thought I was a terrorist," said Williams.

    Williams said Apple wants him to send his iPod back and they've vowed to replace it. Williams' mother called Channel 2 because she said this is more than one iPod. She said it's about what could have happened.

    "It could have happened when we were sleeping, it could have happened when he was driving and the outcome could have been much worse," said Elaine Williams.

    well thats HILARIOUS, but again it could have killed him ....cool
    ok maybe the battery was leaking because of inproper care for it, or there was a short circut causing the paper to catch fire, or maybe the ipod harddrive jammed and caused a fire. once my ipod was so hot, i got blisters on my hand because of the stalled had drive. my advice to him is buy a new ipod, or SUE!

    Ok now that would be some thing different seeing some ones pants go up in flames.He was very luck to not have any serous burns on him after that. Wonder how much he will get out of a lawsuit if he dose sue Apple.

    It sounds a little wierd.... He says "So I look down and I see flames coming up to my chest,".... I think it's wierd that he did'nt notice it before, i can't believe that he could'nt feel it, if he had the iPod in pocket, i must have gotten pretty hot to set a piece off paper on fire....

    That would've been really, really scary...
    But like Alucard_ML said, how the freak would you not realize that your pants were on fire?!
    I would start screaming like a bloody murder and freaking out, not going, "oh, it's sad that it burst into flames after only a year and half."
    Hello, it's not supposed to become a flaming iPod of doom and destruction!

    Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift, that's why its called the present.
