AS WE EXCLUSIVELY revealed earlier, Dell is to recall more than four million notebook computer batteries to allay consumers' concerns of their laptop bursting into flames.

Documents seen exclusively by the INQUIRER say the computer maker will issue a recall of FOUR million 163 thousand 495 batteries. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says recall is the largest computer-related incident in the agency's history.

Dell says the batteries affected were made by Sony.

Our good friends at the Wall Street Journal confirmed the recall and, as any fule kno, if it's in the Journal, it comes to pass.

Of course the move has nothing to do with us. µ
