Toshiba recalls 340,000 Sony-manufactured batteries
Yep, just a few weeks after the Dell and Apple battery fiasco, here comes a third player in the big recall game: Toshiba. Fortunately, none of the affected batteries have undergone spontaneous combustion yet, and according to Toshiba, they're not going to.
Toshiba has joined Dell and Apple, and asked its customers to send back their Sony-made laptop batteries currently sitting in Dynabook and Satellite machines. The notebook maker's recall extends to some 340,000 customers worldwide.
