A blogger recently posted a video online that he claims documents his iMac machine in the beginnings of a very dangerous situation, as thick white smoke begins to billow out of the machine’s rear ventilation slots.

The blogger – who filmed the event on his iPhone 3GS - hasn’t given any explanation as to why the fire may have started.
