After the antenna woes I though the iPhone 4 witch hunt would simmer down a little.  Fat chance.  Bad reception?  Try spontaneous friggin combustion    Devilish   ROFLMAO



Either Apple totally screwed up on the design, rollout and execution of the iPhone 4 or there seems to be some dubious hysteria floating around it.

Lol link bait and a hater convention. AFAIK there's been exactly one incident like this, and the circumstances are as yet unconfirmed. I love the "tip of the iceberg people... Remember the Toyota gas pedal?"

Hasn't there been these exploding laptops and cellphones before? Probably some sort of shit going on with the battery. Your average AA battery can explode like handgrenade when mishandled or shorted out so I guess the lesson is that don't fuck with batteries Wink

Apple really has got some nasty publicity with iPhone 4. Well I guess that's what you get when you really start to gain marketshare.

i HATE these "phone explodes" stories.

Every single time, they make it sound like this is the first time ever in all of cell phone history that a phone exploded.

every single phone manufacturer which has used Lithium ion batteries has had at least 1 phone blow up. Laptops too.
