Apple have tried to pull a fast one - seeking gag orders on people who seek a refund for their exploding iPods.

?They?re putting a life sentence on myself, my daughter and Ellie?s mum, not to say anything to anyone. If we inadvertently did say anything, no matter what, they would take litigation against us. I thought that was absolutely appalling.

?We didn?t ask for compensation, we just asked for our money back,? he added.

Apple, word to the wise: when you try this, people get mad and even more people hear about the cases.
