Another Galaxy phone explodes: why Lithium-Ion should die, not Samsung

The amount of smartphones that explode every year has gotten entirely out of hand, as one Galaxy S6 Edge user was loathe to find this week.

Are you disappointed that Apple discontinued its Thunderbolt displays? Do you own a not so recent Mac or MacBook? If you answered yes to both, then your prayers may have been answered.
