Here's yet another incident that occurred in the Aix-en-Provence in southern France resulting in an injury caused by an exploding Apple iPhone. The French teenager involved only suffered an eye injury after his girlfriend's iPhone started making a hissing noise with the screen suddenly shattering afterwards – sending shards in the air right at him. Luckily though, he didn't lose an eye during the accident. Another event that happened in Britain a few weeks ago resulted in Apple offering a refund for an exploding iPod as long as the family signed a confidentiality agreement. No word yet if Apple is doing the same for this latest incident involving their venerable device. So if you start hearing the same noise, just put it down and walk away as far as possible so your eyes can at least gaze at the unfolding event.
