Oh, and also: Sony's TVs might sometimes burst into flames

Yeah, not a great week to be working at Sony. Sony is recalling 1.6 million Bravia TVs sold since 2007 because a component on the sets can evidently melt or catch fire. Eight incidents of this have been reported since 2008, making me wonder what Sony was thinking after, say, the seventh incident. "Well, sure our TVs have CAUGHT ON FIRE SEVEN TIMES but really what are the chances it will happen again?"
