iPod Nano Catches Man's Pants on Fire

A Georgia man has escaped injury after the iPod nano he owned caught fire inside of his pocket, the exact cause of which is not yet known. Danny Williams of Douglassville, Georgia said all that protected him from burns was a piece of glossy paper that he had in his pocket along with the device. The burning nano did, however, burn a hole in the man's pants.

Williams works at a kiosk Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. He said the incident could have posed a big problem: "If TSA had come by and seen me smoking, they could have honestly thought I was a terrorist," he told WSB-TV. According to Willams' parents, Apple has said it would replace the unit. Apple has so far refused to comment on the incident.
