CNN: U.S. electronics giant Apple is investigating reports in China that a woman died after being electrocuted while trying to make a call with her iPhone 5 while it was charging.
Ma Ailun, a flight attendant with China Southern Airlines, was picking up her handset to answer a call last Thursday when she received an electric shock, police said Sunday, in reports carried by the state-run Xinhua news agency.
Thanks a lot Steve! It’s bad enough that you remotely disable older iPhones and Macs to make them slow so that people have to buy new ones. Now you’re remotely short-circuiting iPhone 5’s as a form of extortion! Shame on you, Apple, shame on you. I’ll say it again, Apple is one of the most evil corporations in the world. I think besides Monsanto, it’s my second-favorite corporation.
