To put the unsuspecting kiosk owner's mind to rest with regard to his personal safety, I've had iPhones for three years now and have never had any problems even though one of my chargers isn't even an official Apple one (Belkin). There was a spate of exploding iPhones a while ago but I've never heard of a British charger going bang unlike the US version according to a Google search I did on reading DaveR's original post.

Dave:  that needs returning to Apple. Never heard of that happening before, but on my only ever issue with them, I got a free iPod out of it.

I just saw an original iPad 64gb WiFi & 3G on ebay for £250, so I nabbed it for my Apple collection.  $good$

Not surprised at your blown up plug. After all you have been tempting fate since your old snakecorp days. Every post you write has the words "blow up" on your trade mark photo on the left. Mike

With the expected launch of the iPad3 today now could be a great time to pick up
a bargain on eBay as people upgrade to the new model.

My iPad arrived today and I'm very pleased with it. I notice that quite a few of the Apps have different versions for the iPad, so had to reinstall a few after I synced it with my iPhone to transfer all my ebooks etc across. The only tiny annoyance is that the backspace key is in a different place on the ipad keyboard to the iphones. Apart from that, excellent. $good$

The 'Retina' display on the new iPad looks rather special;  almost certainly another big hit for Apple.
