Seems like Dell wasn’t Sony’s only customer. Yesterday Apple too started an exchange program for batteries sold between October 2003 and August 2006 … and guess who has one of the affected batteries :-?
After noticing this yesterday night thanks to this article on Golem I went right away to order a replacement, but somehow the form didn’t accept my battery’s serial number. Well, seems like the server had just too much load because now it finally seems to work :-) Let’s see, how long it will take Apple this time to ship the new battery.
Back in January they were really fast: 2 days.
