We didn’t notice last week when a torching iPad Air alarmed the Canberra Centre Vodaphone store. But the story has since been circulating in and out of world mainstream and tech media until now, nearly a week later, it’s lighting up The Register.
Apple fanbois around the world are on red alert after one of the latest fruity fondleslabs caught fire and exploded in an Australian Vodafone shop.
A demonstration model of the new iPad Air caused a fire so intense that the fire brigade were called.
Although no-one was hurt in the fire, fanbois around the world will be sleeping a little less easily tonight.
