Danger UXB

Don’t let this happen to you.

If you bought a laptop, or a battery from Apple after October 2003, then go here to see if you’re eligible for a replacement.

This is the best news ever. With a dead battery and a hard drive displaying a bad case of bad-sectoritis, I was all prepared to retire my Powerbook rather than pay to replace both. But now that I’m getting a free battery, installing a fresh HD makes a lot more sense.

Three cheers for Sony’s shoddy QA!


  1. Hate to be the one to point it out, but from what I can see in the picture a new HD won't quite do it.

  2. Ach, it's nothing. It'll rub off.
