Who Needs Central Heating?
My legs are kept nice and warm as I sit here typing away on the laptop balanced across my thighs. Its amazing how much heat these devices throw out.
However we are lucky, we aren’t using a Sony Vaio as this week Sony Corp voluntary recalled 438,000 Vaio portable computers, citing a potential hazard that could cause the machines to overheat or possibly burn a user! The flaw, in Sony's VGN-TZ100, VGN-TZ200, VGN-TZ300 and VGN-TZ2000 series computers, is reportedly related to "irregularly positioned wires near the computer's hinge and/or dislodged screw inside the hinge" that can cause a short circuit and overheat.
I wonder if the Sony Reader could double up as an electric blanket after your bedtime read?
