Baked Apple (iPod)PowerPage regulars will remember our story from February 2003 about a woman who baked her PowerBook in the oven for 20 minutes, then our story in March about the burnt PowerBook for sale on eBay (since removed). Well, this Friday we bring you Baked Apples Part III iPod edition.

Here’s the gist of the story as it was told to me: This guy was at a cookout where there was a bon fire. Anyway, it got dark and some of the people that were there started going around and scaring each other, playing “tag” in the dark, etc. Well, this guy was listening to his iPod around the fire, walking around or whatever, and someone came up from behind him and scared him. His normally firm grip on the iPod was gone. He fumbled for it, scrambling to catch it, but couldn’t. Down it fell into part of the fire. Quickly he kicked it out with his shoe, but not before the damage was done.

For the whole story (spoiler: it still works) and more pictures check out
