guessing you'rethinking of third party, would stick to genuine apple cables unless you possibly want this to happen.

Apple is helping police in China investigate an accident in which a woman was killed by an electric shock when answering a call on her iPhone 5 while it was charging, just after she got out of the bath.

yeah I know but they suspect that a third party cable could possibly be at fault.

there is also this incident where a bloke was fell into a coma after plugging in his iphone 4 to charge, again they suspect a third party cable.

"If the details of the fatality are correct, it may point to a flaw with the charger or its connecting wires. The Sina English site quoted the family saying the phone had been bought last December from an Apple store, and was using the original charger"

"It comes a week after an air stewardess was killed by an electric shock when she answered a call on her iPhone 5 while it was recharging on a wet third-party charger."

Noreve cases look nice:

Can usually pick them up cheaper on ebay too.

I got one of these from the Maxx today, £10

Not as nice as Makr but decent leather IRL

I stand corrected robii, read this originally on another forum and that was what others were alluding to.

duffman these il bussetto cases don't usually get much cheaper than this.

Any contract deals around for an iPhone 3GS/4? My Dad has decided he wants an iPhone, but doesn't even really use his old Nokia now. He wants to pay about £15 a month with a bit of data included, is there anything out there?

got a new iphone 5 (O2 deal) and coming from a 4 it's not much of an upgrade it has to be said. One thing that is far worse is the screen. Before I walk into a geek store and have to deal with those annoying people in blue can anybody confirm that a yellow/green tint to the 5 screen is not normal?

yeah not normal.

I thought it wasnt much of an upgrade at first but now when i use my girlfriends 4 it seems a lot slower and feels like a bit of a brick

cheers. Will pay them a visit. It's slick that's for sure but the 4 was still up to the task.
