Apple, on the heels of Dell, is recalling 1.1 million battery packs because of Sony batteries and the potential for fire.
The Apple laptops--12-inch iBook G4, and 12- and 15-inch PowerBook G4--were sold between October 2003 and August 2006. I bought mine in June 2005. So if this affects you, like it does me, you should remove the battery, check the serial number on your fire hazard, and call the company or go to the Apple Web site and follow directions (I wanted to provide a link, but couldn't get any of them to work).
So, here's a question for you. I can see why Sony's stock has fallen nearly 3%, if the recall is costing Apple and Dell between $171 million and $257 million--that's a lot of liability. Why, however, was there an initial sell off of Apple shares? I think we should see where the next covered-by-insurance problem is, and buy!
A company needs to create a repeatable sales process to grow and thrive. This means a template for a successful customer engagement can be described and taught to new team members, who are expected to become productive in a few months.
