To google or not to google, I love googling things

I've been meaning to say this, Google, google This! (See my previous post)

Google *IS* a verb whether you like it or not.

If you don't like it, change your brand name. Then change it again when that name becomes a verb, and keep doing it until people get fed up with your whining and use some other search engine to GOOGLE what they are looking for.

Now, to google this in a few days and see if it shows up on Google.

Apple recalls 1.8 million batteries

Apple recalls 1.8 million batteries, due to risk of overheating and causing burns.

The cells in the lithium-ion batteries in the iBook G4 and PowerBook G4 computers - the only two models affected by the recall - were produced by Sony.

But Wait, before anyone gets uppity about whether or not their laptop is going to burst into flames and take out a few city blocks, here is some excerpts from a Yahoo Tech expert on these battery issues.
Specifically he is talking about the Dell recall, but it just as well applies to any battery recall.

Here are what I think is the key parts:

People seem to think they're sitting on a time bomb, and they want it off their desk immediately.

Well I'm here to tell you one thing: Relax.

Seriously. Calm down.
