    Richard - August 5th, 2009 8:35 PM

The activities of Apple’s legal team hit a new low after threatening an 11 year old girl after one of its iPods exploded.

Not worried about being sued themselves, Apple UK agreed to refund the purchase price to the girl’s father in exchange for a confidentiality agreement that threatened a lawsuit if the family ever disclosed the settlement terms or even its existence.

Ken Stanborough, the girl’s father, who told the story to The Times of London. Stanborough said that he dropped his daughter Ellie’s iPod Touch and it began making a hissing sound. "I could feel it getting hotter in my hand," he said, "and I thought I could see vapour." Mr. Stanborough threw the iPod out of his back door, where "within 30 seconds there was a pop, a big puff of smoke and it went 10 feet in the air."
