Apple makes an appearance in no fewer than five of the top 10 most popular stories with V3.co.uk readers this week - but not necessarily for the right reasons.
The company has apparently sought to gag the owner of an iPod touch that became a little overheated and blew up, and its refusal to admit Google Voice for iPhone into the App Store has now attracted the attention of the Federal Communications Commission. But the new Snow Leopard operating system seems popular, so it's not all bad.
Also popular was the discovery of a fake ATM at a casino in Las Vegas, and the suggestion that using Facebook can have 'unexpected' consequences.
Microsoft, meanwhile, has dropped plans to ship a version of Windows 7 without Internet Explorer, and The Pirate Bay is edging ever closer to a treacherous lee shore.
