Apple iBook/PowerBook Battery Recall

Apple instituted a voluntary battery recall today for Sony-manufactured batteries sold between 2003 and 2006 for the 12-inch iBook, 12-inch PowerBook G4, and 15-inch PowerBook G4. The company’s servers are being hit hard (it’s getting wide press coverage), but in writing it up for TidBITS, I noticed that there are three different sets of serial numbers being made available. See the whole ExtraBITS post for details.

  1. Looks like the noise problem again. Noise is not very compressible, so it stuffs around with compression, and bandwidth starts to matter a lot. Apple iBook/PowerBook Battery suffers from this too in lower light (that would have been a good camera to compare against).
