Anybody Using Xboxs. MS power cord recall.

REDMOND, Wash. -- Microsoft said it will replace the power cord on more than 14 million Xbox consoles worldwide because of a fire hazard.

The company said there have been 30 failures that caused minor burns or smoke and fire damage to carpets or entertainment centers. In seven instances, it said customers suffered minor burns to their hand.

While waiting two to four weeks for your new power cord, Microsoft said turn off your Xbox console when not in use.

I copied and pasted

your post to an email to Derek, George. He's a huge Xbox player, but I'm not sure if he's got it on the ship with him or at the apartment so I sent the email to both places. I appreciate the notice......
