Dell Recalls 4.1M Exploding Laptop Batteries

An exploding truck full of bullets did it: Dell is issuing a massive recall of their laptop batteries.

4.1 million batteries will be recalled in total, what with their penchant for making like makeshift hand grenades and all. That’s 18 percent of all laptops Dell has sold from April 2004 to July 2006.

It is perhaps not coincidental that this comes at a time when laptops are being increasingly viewed as potential terrorist weapons by the FAA. Dell — the Islamic fascist’s suicide bomb of choice!
