  Apple batteries get recalled

It's official, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has put out a recall for batteries used in certain iBook and PowerBook Computers due to the batteries getting way too hot. But how can one tell if your iBook or Powerbook is one that needs to be recalled? Easy. First, turn it on. Then set it on your lap, watch a movie on it or something because it needs to be there for a while. Sit there for two hours. After the two hours, look at your thighs, are they burnt to a crisp? If so, you need to turn that battery in pronto. If you don't want to burn your legs, you can always follow the Safety Commission's recommended advice, you can find the full release here.
