Ta um really scary video: the Chinese who posted it on the network said he was in the office with his iPhone 3GS when iMac started to smoke, out of the blue. The screen went black and he quickly disconnected the computer from the power, preventing the machine from catching fire.

With so many cases of accidents involving Apple products recently, the circulation of this video really shouldn't go down well in Cupertino's eyes. On the other hand, it is obvious that we are talking about a series of totally isolated events, which become public and commented on precisely because it involves the “beautiful, perfect and so well built iProducts“.
Only in the last fiscal quarter (!), Apple sold 2.6 million new Macs, 10.2 million new iPods and 5.2 million new iPhones. When these incidents represent 0.001% of the total, wake me up, please.
