Warning: Dell laptop battery recall

Hi folks -

I just read in the NYT online that many Dell (and other) laptops manufactured from about 2004 onward might contain faulty batteries which could overheat or explode. You can find if your Dell battery is one of the potential problems on the Dell website.

Warning: Other laptop and cell-phone manufacturers which use a particular type of Sony lithium-ion battery made in Korea have the same potential problem, but Dell is the first to do a recall. Expect other recalls - and be careful!
