Memorex today announced that it has begun shipping the first HD DVD-R discs ($20 each), and said it would offer HD DVD-RW discs by the fourth quarter.... today revealed that it received a letter from Apple stating that its Tinpod -- an MP3 player case made of tin featuring artist illustrations -- is "confusingly" similar to Apple's own iPod trademark....

    Laptop Battery

    I had a Dell laptop. The battery wouldn't hold a charge and would get really hot during use. But it was not one of the models that was recalled so I was forced to find another solution. I bought a replacement laptop on and was really pleased. I would recommend checking them out if you need a new laptop battery.
