Another One Bites the Dust
Are you ready for this?
Are you hanging on the edge of your seat?
Are you happy? Are you satisfied? - J Deacon
Another Apple 'hottop' has exploded - but in contrast to what's happened in previous incidents, this was not an Intel notebook and the battery which caused the explosion was not amongst those slated for recall.
The computer was an ordinary 'innocent' Apple 15 inch AnalBook with a PowerPC processor. The computer wasn't even turned on.
It just exploded.
Says Chris Kierney of Apple Defects: 'With the recent rash of blow-ups, it's only a matter of time before one of these unintentional weapons is situated on some helpless child's lap, exploding its way into a hospital room and severe injury.'
