And I own one of these...love it to death.  Hope it is not smoldering in my car right now.

Laptops have the same problem.  I remember one caught fire on a plane during flight.  It is just a byproduct of needing high power from a small battery.  If I remember right, Sony also had a problem with camcorder batteries.  Something to do with the metal used inside the battery.

You would think the little I-pods would not require a great deal of power consumption, however...of course, with nano technology, it is most likely true.

I do not own the Nano, I actually own one of the smaller ones that was just released...but does get a little hot sometimes...hmmm...

Only have the bigger video ipod. Never had any problems with it heating up.

Reminds me of Fight Club where the guy's job is to determine the financial impact of issuing a recall vs buying off lawsuits
