Now It's Apple's Turn - RECALL

This just came into my Inbox. Thankfully I don't use an Apple or it might have exploded...

Apple Computer Inc. will recall 1.8 million lithium-ion notebook batteries
after nine devices overheated, causing minor burns in two users, U.S. safety
regulators said Thursday.

The recall is the second-biggest in U.S. history involving electronics
or computers, after No. 1 PC maker Dell Inc. recalled 4.1 million lithium-ion
batteries last week, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said. In both
cases the batteries had power cells made by Sony Corp..

The recall affects users of its iBook G4 and PowerBook G4 laptop models sold between October 2003 and August 2006. Additional information can be found by calling 1-800-275-2273 or Apple's web page.

Much more coming. Stay logged on...
