WTF? Is this the thing about the 12" BP and 12/14" iB batteries they've had on their website for 400 years?

I'm thinking the newer batteries (for MBP and MB) are OK because they use Li-Poly cells instead of Li-Ion.

Hmmm... I wonder if I'm affected. I replaced my iBook G4 battery with a different brand. Wonder if they've got the same problem. I suppose it's possible that I could get a free new battery out of all this -- not bad!

The newer MB/MBP models use a different type of battery.

Sounds like I'll be impacted. Bought a refurb powerbook earlier this year. No battery problems with it though...

I for one salute Apple in its efforts to ensure a safe computing environment.

And, my salute has NOTHING to do with the fact that my 18 month old and very used iBook battery currently only holds a 10 minutes charge.

:) :) :)

Crossing my fingers I have an unsafe battery...

Apple Recalls 1.1 Million Batteries

Just saw this as a header on CNN, no story yet:

"Apple Computer is recalling 1.1 million laptop batteries supplied by Sony, citing a fire hazard, The Associated Press reports."
