August 30 - Laptop on fire, AGAIN!

Even after Sony's costly recalls of batteries, laptops not affected by the recall are catching fire. Yesterday, in busy Japan, a businessman powered on his machine. Sat at his desk for a few minutes then started reading a file containing paperwork. Before he knew it, his laptop was on fire and smoke billowing out from beneath the keys and out the back fans. This is one of product containing Lithium-Ion batteries, not recalled. Many other complaints have been filed aswell due to overheating and catching fire. Sony is heading for deep water. Let's just hope that they take the batteries with them. It might cool them down.

If Sony doesn't get it's act together soon, it risks facing more fires and more fines.
