A French teenager has been injured by his girlfriend’s exploding iPhone, little more than a week after Apple was accused of trying to suppress news of an exploding iPod Touch.
According to the AFP, Marie-Dominique Kolega contacted Apple after her son was hit by a flying piece of Jobsian status symbol. Apparently, the iPhone made a hissing noise before the screen shattered, sending shards through the air. “My son was frightened but he did not lose an eye,” Kolega told AFP.

Cuban to Murdock: Rupert, You Didn’t Ask, But…

August 10, 2009 Leave a comment

“Mark Cuban has been thinking about empire-building. Not his own.

In a fascinating blog this weekend, Cuban doled out advice to Newscorp’s // [NWS 13.061 0.011 (+0.08%) ] // Rupert Murdoch about charging for content at MySpace and other Newscorp websites.

“Rupert, you didn’t ask my opinion on this,” Cuban starts the blog, “but since when has that ever stopped me.”

First, Cuban suggests that Murdoch should block aggregation sites from linking to Newscorp content, even though he admits that goes against “conventional wisdom”. Cuban specifically points to sites like Michael Wolff’s Newser.com, which is sending Murdoch “inventory” that he usually can’t monetize. “Why would you help a site that is a direct competitor for minimal incremental revenue?””
