Vaio short circuit danger
Sony is recalling 73,000* Vaio TZ-series laptops sold in the US, as a possible short circuit of wires near the hinge could burn users.
*The BBC reports 440, 000 machines in the US and Japan are effected by the recall, but none in the UK.
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission is working with Sony to get the machines back. Users are advised to stop using their machines immediately and check if their laptop is one of those being recalled. The problem is caused by a loose screw in the hinge.
One of the best French door fridges we've tested
A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
