Apple I think we just found out why we aren't hearing more stories of exploding and burning iPods. Ken Stanborough had to throw his daughter Ellie's iPod Touch outside, because it got too hot to hold, and he could see vapour. Within 30 seconds, he could see smoke, he heard a pop, and the Touch went 10ft into the air. After contacting Apple, the company denied liability, but offered a refund. However, Apple said that in accepting the money, Stanborough was not allowed to talk about the existence of the agreement - or else Apple would sue him. Update: Apple told Sky News Online that the letter with the gagging order is standard practice.

And People still hate Microsoft more than Apple. I mean, when you see Apple, you can see how much worse things could have been if Apple was on 90% of the PCs in the world

I think there is a lot of truth in your statement. Not wishing to be modded down, but I am starting to realise that Apple are just as bad as Microsoft - especially where interoperability of their products are concerned with other operating systems. Anyway, slightly off-topic.
