HP wants its cameras to set the world on fire--but not like this

HP wants its cameras to set the world on fire--but not like this

Lord knows how Yahoo News managed to find it buried on HP's site, but this morning, HP issued a recall notice for the Photosmart R707's firmware. It seems that in at least one case, the camera (and apparently its owner) didn't realize that if you try to recharge disposable batteries, inflammatory hijinks are inevitable. Of course, you can't really recall firmware; you update it. So if you have an R707, we suggest you visit HP's firmware update page to smarten up the camera.
