laptop battery recalls; movies score big

I discuss laptop battery recalls as well as the large amount of money made in the first week of release for the movies “Transformers” and “Harry Potter: Order of the Phoenix.” I saw “Transformers” on July 4, 2007.

The Sony laptop battery recall saga continues. CNET reports that Toshiba has recalled more batteries made by Sony in late 2005. Click here for CNET’s article.

In the last two weeks two movies have earned lots of lots of money at the box office. Both “Transformers” and “Harry Potter: Order of the Phoenix” earned about $70 million or so their first week and broke various box office records. I’ve seen “Transformers” and I think it’s worth seeing. It’s very good. The day I saw it at the theater I was at, there was at least one family clapping their hands at the end of the movie. People I’ve talked to also agree that it’s very good.
