More battery recalls

Toshiba has joined the growing number of companies that have been forced to recall defective Sony batteries. They join Dell, Apple, and apparently Panasonic whose battery recall had passed me by entirely who have been affected by the Sony battery problems. Bets on the next manufacturer to be affected? It looks like it might be Lenovo after a spate of recent incidents including the infamous LAX incident. If you have any Sony stock, I'd dump it...

The LAX incident, ouch!

Update: Maybe I was too hasty, perhaps HP is next?

Update: No, Lenovo joins the other manufacturers in the mass battery recall. Thanks Sony, we owe you one...

Update: Hitachi joins the growing number forced to recall their batteries.
