Are you sure you want to buy the iPhone - iBomb? - Latest teen injury

iphone This could well be a joint venture between Apple and the American Government in an answer to the terrorist threat. It is the perfect cover. A concealed WMD.

The Latest in the iBomb saga. A 15-year old Belgian by the name of Salvatore is the latest victim in a series of mysterious iPhone explosions that have captured the attention of France’s and the European Commissions’ consumer affair watchdogs.

The phone began making a hissing noise and the screen suddenly broke, sending pieces flying in the air, was struck in the eye by a piece of glass, the boy's mother said.

Do you really want to buy one?

There have earlier been numerous reports of exploding iPhone devices in the United States, United Kingdom and France.

The iPhone is not the only thing that explodes from Apple. Be aware, the iPod may also be a bomb. It is also known to explode. Read about the Exploding iPod.

Apple believes these incidents are ‘isolated’ but will carry out tests to identify the root cause of the problem.

Reuters reports that Apple told the EU it considers the reported incidents isolated. “Apple have come back to us ... and what they’ve said to us is that they consider these are isolated incidents. They don’t consider that there’s a general problem.”

Do you have an iPod or iPhone? Are you worried?

If the Apple SA suppliers want to give me one to use for an "extended test period", I'd be happy to put it to the test.

If they could through in a Macbook at the same time, I could test the synching between devices, and the functionality and user friendliness of their software for them as well. Drop me a line at iwantamac@blabla.co.za. I'll happily arrange collection.

@greg, Yeah, and because of the threat of injury, I wouldn't mind some danger pay, just to cover potential medical costs.
