Shortly after I got my Powerbook, just over two years ago, Apple recalled its battery because of some fault that I no longer recall. This week, I discovered that the replacement battery is now subject to a recall. So I have to order my replacement, wait for six weeks for it to become available, respond in person within 48 hours of being informed that my new battery is ready and take care in the meantime not to leave the machine on with its battery installed unless it is under supervision. That’s a pain. It’s a bigger pain that I’m looking at a recall for the same component that has been recalled once already. I just wanted to whine on the record.
