Apple to recall 1.8 million laptop batteries

Sony is not having a great year... and I suspect this won't be the last recall.

Apple Computer Inc. will recall 1.8 million lithium-ion laptop batteries after nine devices overheated, causing minor burns in two users, U.S. safety regulators announced today.

The recall is the second-biggest in U.S. history involving electronics or computers, following Dell Inc.'s recall of 4.1 million lithium-ion batteries last week, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said.

In both cases, the batteries had power cells made by Sony Corp.
