Bad Day for Dell - Laptop Bursts into FlamesExploding Laptop - Bad Day

What happened was in the middle of a trade show a Dell laptop burst into flames.  Geeks had claimed for years that their laptops caught fire but nobody believed them - until that fateful trade show.  This was one of the biggest computer disasters of all time.

'We have captured the notebook and have begun investigating the event,' Dell spokeswoman Anne Camden reported at the time, and investigate Dell did. At the end of these investigations the problem was traced to an issue with the battery/power supply on the individual laptop that had overheated and caught fire.

It cost a bomb for Dell to sort out.  Eventually, Dell decided to recall and replace 4 million laptop batteries.  Unfortunately, the exploding battery problem did not finish there.  Apple reported dangerous overheating for iPods and Macbooks.   Sony who were the end manufacturer estimated that the overall cost of supporting the recall programmes of Apple and Dell amounted to 200 million dollars.

Tech support: Are you running it under windows?

Customer: 'No, my desk is next to the door, but that is a good point.  The man sitting in the cubicle next to me is under a window, and his printer is working fine.'

A Funny StoryFunny Computing Story

Have you realised yet that computers are controlling more and more aspects of our lives? It is a genuine concern as this short story tells us.

For instance, if you've worked in a modern office building, you've probably come across the ventilation problem: if you get hot, you can't just open the window. You usually have to ask 'building services', often in a call centre on the other side of the world, to turn up the air conditioning via the building's computer system.

However, there is a company in New Zealand Will and Guy have been told who might be rethinking their reliance on this type of computer control.

Mill St "Pak'n Save Supermarket" in Hamilton, New Zealand was supposed to be closed for Good Friday.

However, it seems that no one told the Computer in charge of controlling the shop, meaning that the doors were opened as normal on Friday morning and the lights turned on, but without any staff being at work.

Naturally the stock didn't stay on the shelves for long; but most of the "customers" didn't go to the trouble of paying for it, although some did, using the automated checkouts.

Will and Guy are beginning to think that maybe it's time to rethink how much power we give to our Computers.
