    Regardless what phone the person have, it should be never left in an area that will have direct contact with the sun over a period of time. Its a shame he lost a good phone and now he has to buy a new passenger seat for himself.

    love it.

    I just see a plane having to make an emergency landing and after a long investigation the culprit ends up being an overheated iPhone. Hmm, think apple will claim responsibility then and actually take action to fix one of countless flaws they don't acknowledge?...

    I don't foresee them doing it, unless incontravertible proof surfaces that the batteries are defective in some form. The article I linked points to some 800 cases of this so far with Apple devices. When you figure how many iPods, iPhones, etc., have been sold, 800 is so neglible a number that Apple can call it coincidence all day long.

    I look at it like I do the "McDonalds, Hot Coffee Lawsuit" years ago. People need to accept responsiblity for their own actions at some point.

    If someone wants to setup a lab and test then publish the results that's one thing. I don't think there's been a study done like that yet. Sometimes i wonder if common sense has left the building.

    o.O

    Hot coffee?! are you kidding me? Take responsibility for what, for the iPhone setting his car on fire? I never had any of my motorola or rim or samsung phone catch my stuff on fire, or even heard of any of those setting anything ablaze. APPLE needs to take responsibility. Period. iPhones aren't supposed to be combustible.

    Agreed. Lets compare hot coffee and the iPhone. You buy the coffee - knowing and expecting it to be hot, knowing if you take that first sip too soon you'll burn your taste buds right off, not to mention you can feel the heat through the cup. You're an idiot, you spill it on yourself - deal with it.

    You buy a phone, knowing it can get warm but it's never too hot to touch and it's not built to start fires. It's on the seat in your car, hanging out and doing it's thing, you know creating an app for that - what is that? I don't know but I've got an app for it .
    Now your car is roasting like a witch in salem. What?! It wasn't doing that when I bought it!

    You buy the coffee expecting it to be hot, you don't buy an iPhone to start fires. Just remember apples words of wisdom: Is your car on fire and you want to put it out? There's an app for that.

    Well after all that was said and done I have one further comment concerning iPhone and coffee cups - what if the owner picked up the phone and placed it to his ear and the thing just lit up ?
    No real comparison to a hot coffee cup burning your lips is there ?
    Like (a new argument) why don't the authorities force Apple to place a warning sign on their iPhones' like the cigarette manufacturers ?
    Like "USING THIS PHONE MAY CAUSE SEVERE BURNS " or "EXTENSIVE USE OF PHONE WILL CAUSE BRAIN DAMAGE".
    LOL !
