That lady is exactly what is wrong with this country. It's sad...

I bet it's the OctoMom.

No problem- I remembered you were so proud that you've been wanting the voice thing and it actually came about. So I figured you were gonna go for it now. May your 2G Shuffle keep working then. It's like the most indestructible thing. I use mine all the time. Love it, average sound and all.

As an California-born American whose lived outside the USA for nearly 15 years, I must say that it is shocking just how much fatter the already obese in America have become.

Eat intelligently, for crying out loud. Reduce the amount of food in your home at any one time, don't shop at bulk food places like Costco, and control your hand that feeds your mouth. Then perhaps people will take you more seriously. Yes, looks do matter to many people, unfortunately. It's a sad part of human nature. But by losing weight you will live longer and experience a better quality of life. The other really sad and almost criminal part of being excessively overweight for extended periods of your life is that if you later marry and have children, most often those children get fat due to the horrid habits of their uncaring parents. Fat people are therefore responsible for breeding fat, and therefore causing a strain on health care systems, driving up costs due to diseases related to being overweight. Refusing to return to your body's normal healthy weight is the epitome of selfishness.


I personal hate lawsuits of any kind, especially class-action. If this woman's son was really burned, she should have tried to negotiate with Apple, showing them video of her son's pants and burned leg. I'm sure that would have some serious emotional impact on someone at Apple (other than an Apple lawyer, of course). (Fat or not, this is what she should have done.)

I don't like actual lawsuits but I don't have any problem with "threatening to sue" if negotiations break down. Apple gets sued so much it would want to settle out of court. And so long as the amount was reasonable (a few thousands of dollars versus millions) as it would seem in this case, it would seem only logical that Apple would settle it quietly and keep it out of the public eye. I personally want to keep it out of my eye so the media can instead focus on the discontent among veteran Mac lovers about why Apple ignores its users who hate gloss and want a mid-range tower. Now that is news that should pound on Apple daily until Apple changes its iTune.

As to the fellow who owns the bad iMac, I am tempted to say he should have just bought AppleCare, but then that would make me a legal-defender of Apple, which I am certainly not. That video shows just how bad his poor Mac is. If I were him, I would drive to Cupertino with that Mac and show it to someone first hand. If he is turned away, he should go to the media with his story and keep it in the media daily. Perhaps then Apple would come back to the table to settle with him and keep it quiet. Then this fellow could just tell Apple he wants his settlement in product, rather than cash, which would make Apple happy. I personally would ask for a free, newest model Mac of my choice for the next decade. That would be a fun settlement, unless of course Apple screwed up on the screens of all those machines during that 10 years! Ack! :-)

Cincinnati is a great city. Go visit some time.

I'm sure Cincinnati is a great place but this lawsuit has fraud written all over it.
  • It's not a class action as it should be if it's the real deal.
  • It charges all kinds of people that have nothing to do with the design of the product
  • It's really short on any kind of detail of what actually happened
  • It's written by someone who doesn't even know what the name of the product is.

I searched for an hour on this story and I have yet to find anywhere where the details get any clearer than : "He had it in his pocket in the off position and it caught fire melting his underwear and burning his leg."

Some obvious questions: Was it in his back pocket? Did he habitually keep it in his back pocket? had he ever sat on the thing? How did he know it was in the off position if it was in his pocket? Was the burn on his leg because of the nylon underwear or a burn from the actual product?

There are also no pictures to be found and no stats on how many time this has happened before. A company is not liable for this kind of thing unless there is a design flaw that contributed to it.

While I did read today, because my alum. iMac does suffer from some vertical "waviness" especially towards the ends. I think it's "just the way it is", and am not interested in a suit of any kind. I'm very happy and might say, proud of my iMac.

I'm also happy and proud for this youngster's mother, who is wise enough to stand up for the child in a court of law! Shame, on any of you Over-Educated Idiots, who just don't get it!
(Btw) it don't mean squat about how the lawyer spelled it in the complaint.

Since Apple mass produces, a process that results in very few differences between objects, it is more likely something the owner did. But the judge has to determine this.

How can you claim that Apple was fully aware of the risks or did not test the product enough when there have been millions of units sold and (as far as I know) only 1 that caught fire?

My nieces nano did that while laying on my brothers desk at home. Thankfully, nothing caught fire past the iPod and a bad spot on the desk. Apple did not take it back or seem concerned. He had to purchase a new one.

I know it van be a pain as any normal corporation, just like insurance companies, will deny such claims and naturally assume the customer is probably lying unless they are persistant, but it sounds like you brother have a case for a new Nano and desk. Only when such a problem becomes rampant do the claims get easier to deal with out of the gate, though they usually issue a recall by that point.

Yeah, I agree. We have a manufacturing company together and we know how it goes. However, we would have just replaced it on good faith but we are kinda specialized and the two cannot be compared.

I was surprised that they did not want it back just to look at. Now that was the weird part. He called the 800 number and visited the store to try and get them to just take it back to inspect. No dice.

My niece was happy though. She got the latest nano out of the deal.

Relatively small amount of money????? She's asking for almost a quarter million dollars ($75 K compensatory, $75 K punitive, and $75 K unspecified damages). That's absurd for a second degree burn in an isolated incident. Second degree burns hurt, but they're not that serious. And suing the retail clerks is just plain absurd.

The kid is more harmed by having a money grubbing, leech for a mother.

You people are so brainwashed by the corporate media: Individuals = bad, corporations = good. Disgusting!!!

Where did anyone say they shouldn't? If the product was defective, Apple should be held responsible (and if the problem was a component that was defective, Apple would be indemnified by the company who sold them the component). I haven't seen a single statement saying that Apple shouldn't be responsible. But $225 K for a simple second degree burn is absurd - especially considering that it's an isolated incident. This is the first reported burn incident out of how many iPods sold? 100 million? Arguing that the product was badly designed is a sure losing strategy.

The iPod burned the kid's leg! Off the production line there are the occasional bad units. Apparently this kid got one of those that oddly passed through QC. Apple should be held responsible, given they find nothing tampered or 3rd party issue (and you cannot include software since Apple checks all software before it goes out to these devices). I don't think that would be the case. And in comparison, 75,000 is not that much money. Depending on surgeries done, a good chunk of that will go towards Medical Expenses.

Maybe you should read the article. It was a second degree burn. There would be no reason for surgery. When I was a kid and someone got a second degree burn, Mom sprayed it with Bactine and they were fine in a couple of days. Blowing this up into a major 'design failure' fantasy is crazy. Compensatory damages would be a new pair of pants, one (maybe two) doctor's office visits, and a new iPod. Maybe a few miles of driving for Mom. NOT $75 K - and that's just what they're asking for compensatory damages.

Maybe someone posted this already - but who is responsible for determining that the iPod was the cause? could it be the kid was smoking or engaged in some other activity that caused a fire that just happened to be in proximity to his iPod?

As far as the second case, the damaged iMac display, the owner got his comeuppance for creating or displaying such hideous art on an iMac. He/she should also be arrested and charged with child abuse for subjecting a baby to it.

This is (among other reasons) is why all in ones suck. It's throwing the baby out with the bathwater.

Also, why are replacement parts for Macs so outrageously overpriced? They make the Apple tax on RAM look trivial. Apple probably pays $40 for these panels.

Suck, no, but it does certain limitations for the convenience it brings. Same goes for pretty much every technology I can think of. Your case is also true of laptops which, by literal definition of the term, are all-in-ones. Yes, they offer a certain level of convenience in their portability that makes it acceptable for having smaller, less powerful components at a higher price, as well as the higher likelihood of issues. But that doesn't mean that desktop AIOs don't have their non-aesthetic benefits, too.

Replacement parts for an entire system piece by piece would be many times more expensive than buying the whole system. This isn't just Apple, but all computers and cars and, again, pretty much any other complex technology I can think of.

I don't know why everyone is coming up with all kinds of weird possible explanations.. Although we can't possibly know the exact details, the most obvious explanation for this is a defective lithium Ion battery. This wouldn't be the first (or thousandth) time that a Li-Ion battery unit overheated and burst into flames or exploded...

But, if they hurt my child, both of which, and their spouses have Apple's, hurt them, or my grandchild?
By no fault of their own?
Apple will Pay!
Why?
Because, IT's the LAW!

Like it or not.
It's not demorcrank, or repulicank.

It's the law of tort.

You hurt someone, (ESPECIALLY A CHILD), YOU PAY!

LOL any time you use "Conservative" or "Liberal" it shows bias. I agree, this suit SUCKS and wreaks of a quick buck, but I believe in fiscal responsibility and social liberalism, and I loathe pigeonholing others based on preconceived notions...

The very fact that you don't think something is wrong with that is evidence something is wrong with you. But sadly, you can take comfort in knowing that many others are like you in America today and explains why so many are obese. No one feels guilty about getting fat in the USA anymore. It's frightful.

And if it is so right and cool to be fat and uneducated, then I must assume that if you wed and one day have children, you will encourage your offspring to eat excessively and never attend school? You are basically admitting as much by stating there is nothing wrong about obesity or the lack of a reasonable education. Scary. Very scary.


But fat or not, I still feel the same as I stated in my previous post about this woman and her son. She and her son need to be treated as human beings, not mere objects. But that doesn't mean they are "entitled" to become rich over this. I would expect they are due reasonable compensation for medical expenses and the cost of a replacement product.

By the way I agree it was probably something in his pocket like a paper clip that jumped the terminals on the dock connection...

Thought...maybe she is related to the McDonald's hot coffee lady...inbreeding maybe? Likely.

Suing the entire supply chain, including the retail clerk who rang up the purchase, sounds like the action of a paranoid conspiracy nut, or an extremely overachieving lawyer.

Suing the entire supply chain is the sign of a good attorney, in a products liability case. Since most products involve many different vendors and manufacturers, an attorney would need to list all of them in the lawsuit. They are not seeking class action because one iPod Touch exploding does not represent a class action. Since it is not yet known what caused the iPod to explode, you need to list all the players involved. If you went to trial and it was determined that the manufacturer of the battery caused the defect, and your attorney only listed Apple as a defendant, then you have a malpractice lawsuit against your attorney for failing to properly pursue a products liability case. If this iPod did explode due to a defect, wouldn't you want your attorney to cover all the bases?

Don't F with me, you Anulsadkarian!

This woman's child was hurt by an Apple product.
According to "This Country's" laws, she has the right to bring suit, which she did.
According to my own law, I have a right to Scar you dead, for touching my child! BEWARE, ME!
You stoopid fool!
You're dam lucky this is an internet forum!

Regardless, the nice lady is doing the correct thing, and all you "fanboys" don't like it! Hah! Hey, guess what? I hate MS. I buy Apple. But, they hurt my child, They will pay, like anyone else!

Do you hear me, mister unspellable name?

Enjoy prison, because you will be there soon if you carry out your threat on someone. That is the way it works in America.
