We're so bored of this. Another week, another set of battery recalls. Following an incident where a man's ThinkPad exploded in an airport, Lenovo is sucking it up and calling back 500K potentially bomb-bastic lithium cells to meet their maker. Fuck it, I'm not sending shit back. The odds on my balls catching fire from my laptop exploding? Very low, and I'm just willing to risk the lives of my unborn children so I can have zero-gap internet usage.
