For whom the cell tolls
Very bad taste.
But also, I have to admit... very funny.
A Chinese man was reportedly killed at a computer shop last Friday after the cell phone in his chest pocket exploded, severing a major artery in his neck and leading to massive blood loss. According to local news reports, the man worked as a shop assistant at the store. An employee at a neighboring 7-11 convenience store told …
Hm.... China ... "new" battery ... why does this sound like this guy bought one of the "local" cheapo batteries? If this is the case, well... this guy found out exactly why you should not buy batteries of dubious quality, and it's really sad that he didn't survive to learn this lesson.
Also, it looks like putting your cellphone on your chest is as dangerous as carrying a grenade! Maybe I should stop carrying my cellphone on my belt-clip...
"An employee at a neighboring 7-11 convenience store told local media that she heard a loud bang and saw her colleague lying on the floor in a pool of blood"
It seems the mans neighbours can see through walls...A result of all that microwave radiation no doubt...
Oh, wait. do they still have paper thin walls...?
is to proceed to China, track down the source of these counterfeit batteries, identify the individuals involved in manufacturing them, and eliminate them as expediently as possible. As usual, should you or any of your IM team be killed or captured, the Secretary of State will disavow any knowledge of your actions. This message will self-destruct in 5 seconds...
"Cor blimey, have a look at the norks on her will ya?!"

X zillion phones with batteries in the world and one goes boom and kills one person (allegedly) and that's news.
X billion cars in the world and several thousand go crash every day and kill thousands and that's not news.
Hmmm. Think there's a "sense of proportion imbalance" here.
Have it in breast pocket and blow your heart up, or place it in trouser pocket and blow your 'best friend' away. Shirt pocket please.
Electric cars (like the fast one they fiddled with in Top Gear) use the same technology in their batteries.
So all it will need is a slight tap on the car in front when parking and... bang.
some guy in nigeria got caught being nice to another mans goat, so the tribal elders forced him to marry the goat as punishment ?....the bbc and sky rehash the story every six months, the exploding chinese mobile phone is another one that gets rehashed and reused every so often, it seems even aisa has slow news days..
