A Call For Stories about Gadgets Gone Wrong/Painful/Deadly

Hey there. Have you ever had a gadget fail you at an inopportune time, leading to bodily or at least harm to your life? Ever hear a story like that?

For example, the GPSs that route people into flooded roads/lakes, phones that won't call 911, people crashing into you texting while walking/driving to...well, whatever. A baby being used as a shield by an insane woman avoiding taser fire. Maybe a chair exploding while you sit on it?

If you do have a good personal story to tell—and by good I mean terrible—I'd like to hear it. Email me at blam @t gizmodo.

(Same goes for if you've seen some weird local news.)
