Sony in yet another burning battery mess – 100,000 laptop batteries recalled in latest safety concern

Share

sony-laptop-battery-recall.jpgPoor old Sony is infuriating laptop makers the world over once again, today issuing a recall of over 100,000 batteries it has supplied to numerous portable computer makers.

The recall involves batteries manufactured by Sony in 2004 and 2005, which were supplied to the likes of HP, Toshiba, Acer, Dell and Lenovo. Sony says there have been around 40 overheating incidents involving the batteries, and, like poor workmen the world over, it has blamed the quality of raw materials and factory errors for the problems, rather than just admitting it’s rubbish at making batteries.

It’s fantastic news for us consumers, though – a recall programme like this is a great way to get a new laptop battery for free every couple of years, as Sony has already confirmed that affected users will be able to apply for a complimentary replacement.

  •  Or in yourCheap Beats By
    Dre nonfiction book’s world -nonfiction writers must leave less to
    the reader’s imagination, but editing using this principle will make nonfiction
    stronger as well. As with any other tips, Beats By Dre
    Cheapcustomize it to your writing. It’s also, as I mentioned, about
    brevity. I don’t need to explain why ‘crept out of bed’ beats ‘slowly and
    carefully got out of bed.’

    Of course, adjectives and adverbs have their places. Otherwise
    languages wouldn’t contain so many. You might even find a few in this article
    (only a few). Again, customize this editing technique to your writing. Read a
    few pages and see if you find yourself using dull nouns Beats By Dre Salesuch
    as ‘man’ or ‘thing’ a lot -chances are they’re surrounded by adjectives. If
    not, the potential book sitting in front of you may be dull indeed. Don’t go
    crazy with your thesaurus looking for obscure nouns to replace ‘man,’ but do
    use this technique as a way to vary word choice. And, if you don’t have Cheap Beatsa
    thesaurus, for god’s sake, get one. The thesaurus in Microsoft Word, or
    anywhere online, won’t hold a candle to the old-fashioned bound kind.

    Replace adjectives with more interesting, descriptive nouns, and
    watch your writing become streamlined, subtly evocative, laced with intrigue,
    varied in word choice… Oops, those are all adjective phrases. Just think of
    thisCheap Dr Dre
    Beats noun: ‘bestseller.’
