“We are sorry for the offense caused by the battery recall…”

CT: “We would like to take this opportunity to apologize for the worries,” Sony Corporate Executive Officer Yutaka Nakagawa said, bowing slightly with two other executives at a news conference at a Tokyo hotel.

The executives were seated while they bowed and did not bow deeply standing as most Japanese executives generally do in public apologies for troubles at their companies, underlining how Sony has been reluctant to admit fault in the troubles with its laptop batteries.”

“…but not the exploding batteries themselves.”

How deeply would they bow to the guy whose laptop exploded while sitting on pile of live ammunition?
