Apple has refrained from commenting on the matter, although they have sent packaging to Williams so he can return the iPod Nano. Presumably the company will take a look at the damaged iPod to determine what happens.
This is the first outcry of a smoking iPod, although it could easily be related to laptop recalls from the past few years. PC World reports that iPods use lithium-ion batteries Ė the same kind that were involved in laptops catching fire, leading to recalls from Apple and Dell. Consumers should probably keep a close ear to the ground for further developments. They donít want to be the next person singing, ďCome on baby, light my fireĒ if their iPod goes up in flames.
