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.

The most expensive app in the U.S. App Store today is called iRa Pro: It’s a dashboard to access and control live feeds of video surveillance cameras, and it costs $900.

The company that makes it — Lextech Labs, outside of Chicago — won’t say how many copies it has sold. But Lextech president and CEO Alex Bratton says it’s more than the five people who have reviewed the latest edition on iTunes. He’s “pretty happy with the number.”

Why charge so much? Because for the people who are buying the app, it’s actually a relatively small cost.”
