Looks like things just got worse. Now we’re up from 35,000 to 100,000 and Acer and Lenovo have also joined the party. [Link]

I find it odd that Sony is missing from the recall list. Does nobody else find this peculiar?

It was informative. So what if I inject some of my trademark-pending DukeHumour? If you don’t like it then there’s the door. Not in the physical sense, you understand.

That number will grow some more before Sony steps in…
