Exploding laptops seems to have become a fashion nowadays and the story continues, Yahoo employee’s laptop went up in flames today at their Mission College campus down in Silicon Valley, causing hundreds of Yahoo employees to be evacuated from an 8-story building. The culprit: you guessed it, a Dell machine whose faulty cell that should have been replaced (don’t they have corporate memos at those big companies?) instead caught fire. Noone was hurt, but let this be a lesson, now take Dell up on the freaking recall before something disastrous happens.
Yahoo uses HP and Mac laptops — not Dells — making it very likely this was someone’s personal machine that they brought to work. Wrong day to bring your laptop to the office, man.
