Apple’s lawyers trying to hide yet more information from the public

July 22nd, 2009 | Tags: ,

For the second time within the last week Apple’s lawyers are trying to hide information from their customers. Firstly we had the “laptop hunters” campaign and now exploding iPods – shame on you Apple!

“An exclusive KIRO 7 Investigation reveals an alarming number of Apple brand iPod MP3 players have suddenly burst into flames and smoke, injuring people and damaging property.”

But wait there is more!

It took more than 7-months for KIRO 7 Consumer Investigator Amy Clancy to get her hands on documents concerning Apple’s iPods from the Consumer Product Safety Commission because Apple’s lawyers filed exemption after exemption. In the end, the CPSC released more than 800 pages which reveal, for the very first time, a comprehensive look that shows, on a number of occasions, iPods have suddenly burst into flames, started to smoke, and even burned their owners.
