Apple It seems Apple is on a roller coaster ride this week, going from bad news to good news, back to bad news again. A local television station from Seattle, US, forced the Consumer Product Safety Commission via the Freedom Of Information Act to hand over an 800-page report about fire hazards posed by Apple's iPod music players. Experts on consumer safety agree that it's time Apple makes public statements about the fire hazards posed by iPods.

Did anyone else find it humorous to see that Google Ads "appropriately" places various iPod commercials at the bottom of the OSNews "read more" page for this article? It's almost like: "iPods may severely burn you... BUY ONE NOW! Now with fire-enhancing design packaging."

I'm downright shocked by learning about this type of misconduct by Apple Computer, Inc. It's sickening.

I usually am more 'pro-Apple' but I would never claim to expect such a thing from Microsoft (I'm actually truly impressed by their hardware department). The truth of the matter now is that as far as I know, Microsoft has never been guilty of any such coverup behavior and Apple, obvously, is. Sad!
