How's this for horrible news for Sony: A new battery recall. More Sony-made lithium-ion batteries are being taken back home. These potentially explosive batteries are housed in Apple laptops. Nearly 2 million Apple laptops.

Models affected include Apple’s iBook and PowerBook laptops, but not the newest portables.

It's believed that the overheating problems are not native to lithium-ion batteries but are a result of a manufacturing defect on Sony's part.

Apple has already recieved nine complaints of overheated battery packs and even a couple of folks being burned by the things.
