Boom! (http://www.engadget.com/2007/04/12/exploding-ipod-dies-gruesome-death/) This iPod died, as soon as I saw this I instantly ejected my iPod nano and put it aside.

Here's a teaser...

Well if you look at the scorch marks on the dock connector it doesn't look like the explosion was from the inside.

if you look at the side of the case, where it's split open, it certainly looks exploded.



But I have to wonder, does it smell like cat piss? :D

Looking at the other pictures it definitely looks like an internal explosion. The flame/smoke would've come out the side and around the top. Which seems consistent with the marks on the charger.
