So... why does Apple get all the blame?
It isn't the devices that aren't safe, it's the lithium ion batteries that I'm sure Apple doesn't even manufacture and has no liability for. They are being used in MANY brands of portable electronics.
Also, the phone mentioned in this article was admittedly dropped and damaged. Usually, the phone would not be replaced at all under these circumstances. Apple went above and beyond!
People probably should be concerned about these dangerous lithium ion batteries that are being sold to MANY manufacturers like Apple under the guise of being safe... But, why doesn't this article pick on the manufacturers of those batteries instead of picking out a single company that's having problems with them out of MANY. Just another example of the level of stupidity we've fallen to as a society I guess. You sure don't have to really apply yourself as an investigative journalist to get to the truth of the story as I've just done... and I'm not all that smart... Who gets paid for writing this ridiculous drivel and who "gets off" seeing a successful company dragged through the mud for no fault of their own? Nobody want to write or read the real news about the hostile takeover of the USA I guess. That's not important to us...
