I saw this a while ago:
And very old news.
That's what you get when you continue to hold a hissing, vapor emitting phone. Chunks of glass in your face. Way to support Darwin, Apple!

One in a million - I'll take my chances and keep using my iPhone...
Happened 1 day ago
One: The iPod was hissing and emitting vapor, not the phone. The phone more than likely had no warning signs.
Two: A consumer's phone explodes and you blame the user!? Your statement disgusts me
I know, I was kidding.
So is Apple going to try and give this guy a replacement 3GS as long as he keeps quiet about it, lol. I'd probably only sign that contract if Apple would give me 10 3GSs, or if I knew I'd be getting about $100,000 since the guy did get injured.
Ah, i didn't understand
Happened to me too.
I wonder if the French guy had just dropped the phone in a puddle...
Bwahahahahhaha.... very funny stuff!
I'm surprised the second the phone started acting hostile the French guy didnt drop it and wave a white flag...
What an odd story. Well, a couple of bucks to the kid and all will be right.
Under the rug it will go.
I don't care who you are, the above is funny !!!
Poor kid was heard screaming " Je me rends ! " as he ran for the hills.
Now on to a more sane note ....
If ANY battery powered device begins to hiss/sizzle this would be an indication that the battery vent may have become clogged or the battery is discharging at a rate higher than the vent was designed to handle.
I routinely handle high current LI-PO battery packs and I can tell you those things can be downright dangerous if the discharge rate is excessive. I have seen packs swell up to two/three times normal size and not explode. In some cases I have seen them explode and catch fire in use.
These are used in battery powered larger radio controlled aircraft, and on a few occasions we have seen aircraft burst into flames and plummet to the ground.
We know all to well to walk quickly away from a hissing pack.
Some will try to disconnect the pack before departing the area, but they would be the ones you might read about in the news.
If an iPod/iPhone battery vent failed to operate I could see the pack swelling to the point it would cause the case to split open. Should the pack decide to explode, I could see it launching the device it was installed in.
I have seen guys take the LI-PO packs and INTENTIONALLY charge them too fast and discharge them too fast just to demonstrate what can happen. Of course this was done remotely and at a safe distance!!!
The article said the iPhone was crackling... but sheesh... take a joke kid
