IBM Recalls shocking laptop power units

Better be careful if you use your IBM ThinkPad on your lap:

IBM said on Thursday it will recall about 553,000 AC power adapters worldwide for several models of its laptop computers because of potential fire and electrical shock hazards
The 56-watt adapters can overheat, cause damage to the circuit board and melt through the case, the company and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said
