 There already was a red one ... at $977,000 USD it's a bit pricey. (http://www.sothebys.com/en/auctions/ecatalogue/2013/null-n09014/lot.27.html)
I think TallestSkil hit the nail... Most MacPRO users just aren't going to be interested in a "new" plastic case... they bought a tool and it looks good enough as is.   The "shrink-wrap" idea would be so much cheaper... there might be a market for that product.  The DIY modders will, of course, re-paint the existing piece... but again... the Pro sells in such (relatively) small quantities that tooling up to make a replacement case would just make for a ridiculously...
 Or "Click2Flash".
 ...there's a very remote possibility that it CAN (by overheating), but it's highly UNlikely. I'd recommend you continue visiting the site, as I'm not sure I want you reproducing! ;) (Hard to come to a definitive position on that, however, based on this one thread.)
Excessive heat can cause deterioration of some of the electronics in your computers. That's why they have big heat-sinks and fans to keep them at a reasonable temperature.   However, Heat-realated damage does NOT corrupt the OS.  Based on what you wrote in your OP, heat was not the cause of your machine's demise.   But the machines are designed to be used ... and to run at certain temps... if you routinely run your MBP hard while it's sitting on a pillow that...
Agreed ... he should check that! (I know my kids almost NEVER use their "phone" for voice-calls ... :) )
Almost seems as if it thinks the headphone jack is still plugged in ... it's trying to listen through the headset mic rather than the built-in mic.  It shouldn't happen when the headset isn't plugged in... could something have gotten into the headset socket that is disturbing the contacts in there?
 Nothing's 100% ... but...Don't leave the charger plugged in ALL the time, and don't let the battery sit near zero-charge for extended periods. As the battery ages, internal components can deteriorate... can release some gas in the process... during use of the battery, and especially during charging, heat can build up, the gas expands, in rare cases enough to overcome the structural integrity of the casing.
It's an internal failure of the battery ... not a common failure mode (at least not to that extent) but also not exactly rare. It would require a lengthy (by forum standards) dissertation on chemistry to really explain it, but the short version is:   It's a "normal" age related failure, but expansion to that degree is rare.  It's not likely to happen to that extent again, but battery failure can be expected after several years (hard to be precise, because it depends on...
 Yes.  You just need to make sure the carrier you choose uses frequency spectrum supported in the iPhone (pretty much ANY GSM carrier in the US.)
