Investigations: Apple Tried to Block iPod Fire Records
Some of Apple's iPod MP3 players have overheated and burst into flames, injuring their owners, according to this investigation by KIRO 7. Apple's lawyers tried to block consumer-safety records on the incidents from being released, but KIRO's dogged reporter, Amy Clancy, persisted and succeeded in getting 800 pages of records that reveal the problems for the first time. Hot stuff, Amy!
