Not strictly relevant, but nevertheless pertinant.  I was in the electrical
dept. of a well known department store on Saturday, which was displaying an
array of recall notices for various products.  The common denominator was
that all the recalls referred to exploding batteries.

Does anyone know how much this is really costing Sony?
