    About that exploding iPod Touch story: I dunno, it smells a bit fishy.

    The first thing I though of was the kid having a butane lighter in his pants pocket that might have gone, or if he also carried a cellphone that had a wonky battery, or if (as kids are known to do), crack a case and see what they can do to soup-up ANYTHING that is electronic.

    Forensics will tell the whole story…
