We all know Apple's iPhone is one of the hottest products on the smartphone market -- but for a few unlucky owners, they've also been alarmingly mean and, at times, even explosive.

Whether it's allegedly causing 2nd degree burns and scars, catching fire mid-flight, or cussing out a 12-year-old, it seems some Apple products may have a little bit of a temper.

What's more, the iPhone 4's virtual personal assistant Siri has been accused of alienating users by reportedly refusing to locate abortion clinics when commanded.

In one such instance, HuffPost UK Tech reported on a U.S.-based man who asked Siri to "Find abortion clinics." In response, the iPhone 4S replied, "I don't see any abortion clinics. Sorry about that."

According to the report the man then allegedly asked Siri "Why are you anti-abortion?" The app responded, "I am what I am."

Of course, it's worth keeping in mind that the iPhone also has a humorous side. Remember Sh*t Siri Says?

Some of them are pretty hilarious.
