What do Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, Clippers owner Donald Sterling, and the U.S. Supreme Court have in common? Alert! Rep. Chaka Fattah, D-Penn., seems to think he knows.

A man in Finland claims that his iPhone 4s caught on fire in his pocket, and security footage caught the whole event on camera.
However, it’s unclear if the device in question actually is an iPhone 4s, or if it exploded of its own accord for that matter. But it is clear that the man’s pocket was on fire.

Devices have gotten more powerful — and therefore hotter. The new iPad runs 13 degrees warmer than its predecessor, but that’s not hot enough to burst into flames.
