To alert as many people as possible that ipods CAN catch fire during charging. See howstuffworks for some history. My daughter's flat has smoke alarms & I believe this saved lives, contents, & buildings. And then only because the ipod was on a clear desk. Had the fire involved sufficient paper or soft furniture, then it may have taken more hold & done so faster. Please feel free to suggest methods of publicity. I am starting with notifying NZ Fire Service.
