re: Exclusive Photos: Fire to the Node, Part II
You're suprised that AT&T is replacing the batteries? The report basically stated that they are perfectly safe, except for the fact that some of them are defective and blow up.

No doubt their lawyers let them know what the cost would be if one of these boxes resulted in some small child getting killed or a house getting burned down, compared to the much, much cheaper cost of replacing all of the batteries.

What do you think the cost of the replacement will be nationwide?
