The pyro gods have not been good to Apple lately.
First, it was the fire that broke out on the company's Cupertino campus, damaging an R&D building and causing a grand total of $2 million in damages.
Apple could see a bigger hit, however, from a much smaller burn.
Authorities in Japan are warning users after 3 fires were connected to iPod nano players. Apple admitted that the problem is due to a faulty battery in a small number of the first-generation nano sold between september of 2005 and December of 2006.
Granted, it's really a tiny risk. Less than .001 percent of all first gen nanos are even affected by the issue. Still, I'm guessing anyone who owns a first-gen nano will be hesitant to put it in their front pocket any time soon....
