    Luckily he didn't lose his life, if he does sue apple he would probably make a couple of bucks.

    It could be he used it alot. Having it on for at least 8 hours a day can damage the battery. If they do take it to court they will show more detail on how this happened.

    i am actually intrested to see how this turns out.

    and the batery idea is a good one. maybe it was faulty assembly, and the overuse shorted something out that regularly works fine.

    i'm not surprised at this at all. i've known about lithium ion batteries bursting into flames for a while now. and its not just laptops and ipods, but a few phones with these type of batteries in them as well. i would love to know why these ion lithium batteries are seemingly always bursting into flames, and having a phone next to ur ear then feeling something hot is not a great thing to feel i reckon.

    i hope they sort this problem out soon, but before that, i would like to know if its only related to a brand or model of lithium ion batteries, or if its all lithium ion batteries, so i know what not to buy for the sake of not burning a hole through my wallet just so it will burn another one for me.

    any relativly new technology will always have bugs. im not shure how long lithium ion batteries have been out, but obviously they still need work.
