Melted Networx iPod Dock Connector Cable after used with an iPod Touch

I just tried to recharge my iPod Touch using this Networx cable from Gravis and nearly started a fire in the process!

 

So far, the cable worked perfectly with any other iPod. But when I used it with a Macbook and the Touch iTunes didn't recognized it. But charging seemed to work - at first! I then left the room and came back an hour later. By then the iPod's battery was nearly depleted and the cable was EXTREMELY hot!! When I moved the cable, it fell apart and apparently was melted. Outch!!

 

Don't want to know what would have happened when I would have stayed away a bit longer...
