Apple grousing

How did I find out I had a potentially explosive battery on my Powerbook? From Boing Boing. Thanks, guys! That's a sincere "thanks" to Boing Boing and a sarcastic thanks to Apple. Yes, sarcastic! And not just regular sarcasm -- balls-out sarcasm.

(I enjoy Apple products and have used them my entire career, even kicking up a fuss when everyone else on a staff used Windows. But a company can make good products and be rapacious dicks at the same time. Not everyone has to be Microsoft and emphasize the latter at the expense of the former.)
