Disaster On the Homefront: Macbook Pro Battery Explosion

So sitting in the offices today at Next New Networks, we were alerted to a tragedy of epic proportion. As he was charging his battery earlier company founder and creative director, Fred Seibert experienced the unthinkable! The battery for his 17-inch Macbook Pro suffered a rupture due, I think, to previously addressed battery defects.

No but seriously, if you haven’t sent in your recalled batteries yet, get on that stuff. They can, as you see here, explode. We were at least fortunate enough to not be engulfed in a fiery lithium ion inferno.
