As if identity theft, hacking, viruses, and spyware weren't enough to be concerned about, we are again faced with the possibility that our computers could burn our homes to the ground. Yes, that's right: it's laptop battery recall time once again.

This time it's HP, with about 70,000 lithium-ion-powered timebombs on their hands.
