Apple announced a recall of many PowerBook and iBook batteries today. You can tell you’re a super-geek when your first thought about a battery recall is not “Oh no, it could catch fire!” but instead “Sweet! A free new battery!”.
Update: Damn, I missed the recall by two serials. For the 12-inch PowerBook, the recall starts at 3X446, and I’ve got a 3X444.
I did that a couple months ago when Microsoft had the xbox power cord recall. I still use the old power cord too. Keeping the fixed one for a spare.
