The Hot iPod

Well the iPod has been a marketing success for Apple, quickly zipping off the shelves and into the pockets of happy music lovers the world over.

Unfortunately there is a cloud in this silver lining. It seems the iPods have the same battery techology as all those laptops that catch fire. Lithium-ion batteries to be exact.

Danny Williams' was jamming to his Nano at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport when it suddenly caught fire in his pants' pocket. Williams credits a piece of paper from saving him from some serious burns. Or even worse, TSA would have noticed. "If TSA had come by and seen me smoking, they could have honestly thought I was a terrorist."

So all you Apple iPod Nano owners better call Apple to find out if your's could be the next one to catch fire or even explode.
