Apparently, during a conference in Japan, an attendee's Dell laptop computer essentially spontaneously combusted, resulting in multiple flame-producing explosions over the course of 5 minutes.
The conference was brought to a hault while employees at the conference worked to douse the flames. We don't have details about exactly what kind of Dell this was, nor what caused the explosion.Update 06/27/06:
