I still think the best tech mishap was when Bill Gates was unveiling W98 and it crash when his assistant connected a scanner to the system...on a live broadcast. :thumbsup:

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Probably the battery, which Dell recalled in December due to overheating\fire issues. Toshiba and Compaq have had the same type of recalls.
I don't think you can blame the laptop makers as I don't believe they actually manufacture the battery itself.
In fact, the problem batteries were either made in China or Japan.
Perhaps they got a taste of their own medicine.
It's pretty funny, though dangerous. :thumbsup:

Well in the milions of batteries that are recalled only 3-4 actually exploded. It's just because that when it does explode it is so dangerous that they decided to recall them all. Imagine if this was on your lap...
