While many call the Apple iPhone one of the hottest gadgets ever, this probably isn’t what they had in mind.
Shortly after a Regional Express flight landed in Sydney, Australia on Friday, a passenger’s iPhone began “emitting a significant amount of dense smoke” accompanied by an eerie red glow. According to a press release issued by the airline, a flight attendant “extinguished” the device and no one was hurt.
At last year’s Golden Globe Awards, host Ricky Gervais found himself wiped off more than one celebrity holiday card list after making several pointed, caustic — and come on, admit it, hilarious — barbs at the stars’ expense. Afterwards, many Tinseltown insiders said he’d never be invited back to emcee the event. They were wrong.
Here’s a look at some interesting events that took place on this day in history:
1869 – The Suez Canal, linking the Mediterranean Sea with the Red Sea, opens in Egypt (More info)
1968 – Viewers of the Raiders–Jets football game are denied the opportunity to watch its exciting finish when NBC broadcasts the movie ‘Heidi’ instead, prompting changes to sports broadcasting in the US (More info)
