iPhone 3GS is heating up because of batteries

iPhone 3GS
The new version of iPhone is reportedly heating up due to its battery cells. We all know that if a device is heating up it can eventually explode itself and can catch fire. User groups and forums around the world are filled by the complaints from handful of users who are complaining about the heating problem. One user reported that “I was playing a game and then I was reading news on my browser and I noticed that the iPhone in my hand is really heated up like a fry-pan”. One user has posted image of his white iPhone which was installed with InvisiShield and he posted on the forum that he noticed his shield which is transparent in actual, gone pink due to phone heating.

Experts have called that this is due to the batteries used in new iPhone 3GS which were supposed to give the new version double the life of its previous version. It has also been warned that if American authorities pick-up the issue, Apple will be forced to call back hundreds of thousands of new phones which were launched only 11 days back. However, I believe this is a very specific problem which is in some handful of sets as I also have new 3GS phone and I haven’t experienced any such problem as yet.

Shandur festival on world’s highest polo ground

Shandur Mela (festival) is going to start on 7th July, 2009 on the world’s highest polo ground in Chitral. Chitral is on the border of Afghanistan but a bit away from Waziristan and Swat where Pakistan Army is on war against foreign trained elements who want to de-stabilize Pakistan. The country has recently won 20-20 World Cup cricket tournament and that was a well-needed shot-in-the-arm on time for a nation who daily hear the news of killings of their countrymen by the people working for external powers.



Shandur is highest polo ground on earth, it is about 3738 meters above sea level and lies between Gilgit and Chitral in north-west Pakistan. This area remain snow covered in winters and turn into green heaven in summers. The first recorded tournament played on this ground was in 1936. The teams who play are always of Gilgit and Chitral and they are considered strong rivals to each other. Both teams practice throughout the year to see each other in this ground every July. This festival is very famous among local and general public of Pakistan as well as foreign tourists.
