In brief: Apple's Developer website has released Xcode 2.4 -- the company's software development package -- as a free download.... Following numerous reports of Dell laptop batteries overheating and catching fire with little warning, the computer-maker has issued an unprecedented recall of 4.1 million batteries used in its Inspiron, Latitude, Precision, and XPS systems.... 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.... SanDisk today announced that the European Imaging & Sound Association (EISA) has named the new SanDisk Extreme IV line of Compact Flash cards as the European Memory Card of the Year 2006-2007.

    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.
