Remember those unfortunate Eee Boxes we mentioned last week that were shipped with an active virus on the hard drive? Well, Asus is being a big boy about it and has ordered a recall. That restores some of the cred they lost last week, but I'm still wary. Apparently the infection came from a USB stick they were using to test the things.
Luckily (or unluckily, depending on how you look at it) they'd only sold a couple hundred of the things before this minor calamity, so there's not too much damage to pay for out of pocket.
