    Apple iPhone spontaneously combusts aboard flight in Australia

    [​IMG]

    An Apple iPhone spontaneously began smoking and emitting a red glow while aboard an airplane in Australia. Passengers aboard Regional Express flight ZL319 were welcomed to their destination in Sydney.

    CASA has been previously warned about problems like this happening with lithium ion batteries in aircraft so we just might be seeing more of these reports in the near future, as more and more equipment is packing lithium cells inside their tiny electronic bodies!

      Why is it that when a phone blows up, its always a Iphone?

      It must be because its overpriced crap.

      I have never ever bought anything of the low quality Apple ****, and i never will. The iFashion will wear off soon anyway.

      its not always an i-phone, sometimes its a psp ;) but yes, it tends not to be quality products, just overpriced / over rated ones.

      Thats probably the most usefull thing I have seen an iPhone do, maybe more should do it as it irritates me when I see all the sheep with them singing their praises as due to some crappy app like the lightsabre one but ignoring that it's a second rate phone that is just part of a mobile app store.

      Yes some may get the impression I dislike the iPhone from that little rant, I will say tho I was looking forward to it as soon as I heard it was in the works, right up untill the point that I used mine and it put me off the damn things for life as it was so lacking that it made sub £50 phones look overly feature packed, SE or Sony as they will be in future phones for me that is so long as they don't go down the toilet with only Sony at the helm.

      I'm a new member here anyways from Hong Kong as well

      I have lots of experiences of Apple's Highway robbery prices in Hong Kong and I am not the only one

      I know there are cases of when people's Ipod,Iphone,Ipad and etc need repairing,they are being charged the full price for example a new Iphone screen can set you back as far as $1,800 Hong Kong Dollar when you take it in for repair

      If the repair centre staff are in a bad mood,they will not attempt to repair and just tell you to pay full price for the new Ipod,Iphone or Ipad

      If your Iphone was from a telecommunications company like Owtel or One2Free and needs repairing,Apple will simply tell you to go back to those companies just mentioned to get it repaired and you will be charged at inflated prices

      Those 3 scanarios just mentioned can happen if you live in Hong Kong and ever own a Iphone,Ipod,Ipad,Mac or Ibook
