    Wow, 15 million of these out there!
    My sister called me on this, she has the 2nd one, fortunately I don't have either, figure some of you Mac users here might have one also.....

    2 guys I work with also have 1 of these and now stopped using.

    I kinda wonder their open litigation for past home fires where this was not known, but potentially the cause.....
    Opens up some re-investigation.
