    I think there are different types of silicons because silicon iPod skins are soft but silicon computer chips are hard. So what's the difference?

    Computer chips burn, they do not melt. So how come the chips burn and the skins melt?

    The reason that computer chips 'burn' is simply because the packaging burns when the circuits overheat. A chip is more likely to 'explode' than burn. The substrate will actually just melt if it gets too hot.

    OK, so if silicon melts, the next step is how to fix the iPod case.
