Dell isn't the only laptop manufacturer in town worried about their laptops lighting your genitals on fire, as Apple has just issued a recall for 1.8 million of their laptop batteries. Hot on the heels of Dell's recall of 4.1 million batteries, Apple is recalling batteries from their iBook G4 and PowerBook G4 lappies, with the new MacBooks and MacBook Pros apparently safe. The batteries from both recalls were made by everyone's favorite consumer electronics behemoth, Sony. The two recalls are the two largest in consumer electronics history, and the dramatic images of fiery laptops have a public relations nightmare of Dell's that Apple would love to avoid. While the upcoming Sony Playstation 3 won't come with any of the cursed overheating batteries, it's expected that there will be a high risk of that crashing and burning as well. Hiyo!"
