Apple The European Union has stated today that it is taking the "exploding" iPhone issues very, very seriously. EU consumer watchdog Meglena Kuneva has explained that if national authorities find out that manufacturing faults are the cause of the issue, the iPhone will face an EU-wide recall.

Exactly. The EU is envisioning a world without operating systems and processors.

No, EU just tries to keep unsafe products out of market which is a good thing. I can understand it is frustrating if a product you believe in suddenly shows big problems, but safety has higher priority than any other thing. I don't want ANY product to cause ANY injury to me or ANY person, and You?

Yes, there is one thing more important than safety: Freedom.

Indeed we should ban petrol as diesel is much less volatile. As for electricity, we really ought to move to the much safer 110v that you Americans use, 230v really is overkill - literally.
