Apple Powerbook and iBook Batteries Recalled

It looks like all of the flaming laptops lately has sparked Apple to recall a ton of Powerbook and iBook batteries that were manufactured between October 2003 and August 2006. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall today with information on how to replace your battery free of charge. So if you bought a laptop during that time period, hop on the site to see what serial numbers are affected…unless of course you want to take the risk of frying your legs off…

Apple also has a page for the battery program so check that as well at https://support.apple.com/ibook_powerbook/batteryexchange/index.html.

Search Engine Optimization Glossary

There are many times that I might throw out terms like SEO, CPC, 301 redirect, RSS, SERP, etc in my posts, which might leave you scratching your head. I just came across a nice SEO Glossary that defines practically all of the terms used in search engine marketing. It’s worth a bookmark as you will more than likely run into some terms you don’t recognize if you’re new to interactive media design. Hopefully this will save you some googling!
