 Well of course some random cheap crap phones explode.  What point are you trying to make? No stories about abused phones catching fire?  You didn't try very hard.  Google search for "iPhone explode" and read one of the many articles including following.  This runner-up for the Darwin award kept using her phone after dropping it. http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-57598285-1/damaged-iphone-5-reportedly-explodes-injures-womans-eye/   "The handset was in the student's back...
Hopefully she learned a valuable lesson from this-- don't sit on electronics.  Some people need to learn the hard way.
 All of the iPhone fires/injuries/deaths have been because of misuse or faulty accessories.  Cite one instance otherwise. This girl broke her phone by sitting on it.  That's a FACT.  And NO, it's not reasonable to expect a phone to stand up to anything and everything you do to it.
 That's exactly what I was thinking when I read this article. While it's probably not true that all the carriers got the same number of units, we do know they are all experiencing the same supply constraints.  All carriers are having difficulty obtaining the iPhone 5S, which means that's not the reason someone would jump ship.
Um, how about a pic of the watch that gives some sense of scale?  Like on a wrist??
Feels like stock pumping by dumping rumors with outrageously good imaginary numbers on top of the Sept 10th ones. AAPL analyst motto is, "Buy on rumor, sell on news!" so why not pack more rumors in?
  It is promptly decompiled for examination.  Sorry, should have been more specific.
One does submit their app's source code. The issue here is that not all code behavior can be easily determined. Code can be very complex, even excessively so if the writer chooses. That's why apps with bugs can make it into the App Store to begin with-- not all bugs are found in the first place, even the intended ones. This one was designed to look like it wanted to do something innocent.
  The difference being that this group used the application only on themselves, not real customers.  They didn't take 100,000 developer email addresses in the name of research.  In theory, they could have also used this opportunity to backdoor Apple while the app was actively running for testing.
  Fail.  The link says nothing about Apple engaging in masking sales numbers with shipment numbers.  Try again?
