Of course not.

But if they did, it would be because you were holding it wrong. ;)

It's a joke -- a reference to the iPhone 4 antenna issue otherwise referred to as "Antennagate" - http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2010/07/18/tech/main6690147.shtml

If they exploded, the TSA and local bomb squads around the country would have their hands full, that's all I can say.

They're about as likely to explode in normal use as your car, which is to say they're highly unlikely to explode.

All batteries can be forced into conditions where they'll be unsafe. Here's a video of a lithium ion battery exploding after being intentionally forced into an unstable, highly dangerous state. Normal usage isn't going to do this, and recalls were issued in the past for faulty Li ion batteries across a wide variety of manufacturers, including Apple.

Are you serious? Come on? It might get hot, I highly doubt it will explode. Coming from a Windows Fanboy.

no they do not explode under normal use. I guess if there was a problem with the battery it could explode, but so can every battery on any computer.

Well I have a Macbook Pro and it has not exploded. I don't think apple would release a product if it exploded when they were testing it.
