Illustration for article titled UK Girls iPod Touch Explodes: Did Apple Offer Hush Money?

Hot on the heels of KIRO 7's investigation into fiery iPods, The Times reports that the father of a girl who's iPod exploded was offered a full refund, but only if they signed a confidentiality agreement. He refused.

According to the report, the Liverpool man feared that he or his daughter could be sued if they were to ever talk about the incident, even inadvertently.

It all began last month when the man heard a "hissing noise" and thought he "could see vapor" after dropping his 11 year old daughter's iPod Touch. He threw it out the back door of his house and "within 30 seconds there was a pop, a big puff of smoke and it went 10ft in the air." [The Times]
