+ - Apple to replace first generation iPod Nanos in Ja->

Submitted by hasanabbas1987
hasanabbas1987 (1864608) writes "After two years of pushing and shoving by the Japanese government, Apple has finally relented, agreeing to replace first generation iPod nano music players sold in Japan at risk of overheating. The player exchange goes beyond Apple Japan’s battery replacement program already in effect for those consumers who complain. According to Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, of all the plastic black and white iPod nano players sold between September 2005 and December 2006, it confirmed 27 overheating incidents during recharging including 6 fires that left four people with minor burns. On Sunday, Apple added 34 other “non-serious” overheating incidents to the tally — a delay in disclosure that Japanese officials called “truly regrettable.” Of course, today’s news begs the question of how Apple will handle this issue for all the affected iPod nanos sold outside of Japan."
