Weekend Cat Blogging #64: Luna and laptops

Luna gets distracted while checking whether the battery on our iBook is subject to Apple's recall.

Apple has determined that certain lithium-ion batteries containing cells manufactured by Sony Corporation of Japan pose a safety risk that may result in overheating under rare circumstances.

That is Apple's gentle corporate-speak way of saying “may burst into flames.” Fortunately, it looks like we dodged this one. My Dell Latitude at work was not so lucky, and is now relegated to desk duty while awaiting a replacement battery. Ironically, my home Dell Inspiron whose warm and toasty characteristics I described preparing for my August 6 performance was not on the recall list – indeed, since installing the fan-control software things have improved significantly.

Thanks for boo_licious and her cats Ms. G and Fluffy over at masak-masak for hosting this Weekend's Cat Blogging.

It looks to be a pleasantly lazy Saturday for all of us.

  1. Hope your laptop gets better soon. Exploding batteries are scary. In the meantime, I'm sure Luna will find work with Dell as an inspector.

  2. We dodged a bullet too, I'm so relieved because I love my iBook and don't want to spend any time away from it! Luna is beautiful–look at that fur. Maybe she wants to start her own blog?

  3. thanks for nice comments.
    Luna might start up her own blog at [url=http://www.catster.com/?370450]catster[/url] soon. As for work as a laptop inspector, we live [i]a lot[/i] closer to Apple than Dell, so maybe we'll try them first…

  4. awww,luna is adorable. what is it w/ cats and electronics? mines always sitting all over them too 🙂

  5. I think it must that electronics are warm and purr.
