Apple recalls MacBook Pro batteries

Well, not that anyone's all that surprised, but Apple finally recalled the MacBook Pro batteries. Batteries sold between February and May are likely to qualify (those whose serial number ends in U7SA, U7SB, or U7SC).

The web site indicates that it is performance issues and not safety that is the problem with these batteries, and I will say that from my experience there has been great variability between batteries on my MacBook Pro, so it doesn't surprise me. However, there have been reports from users of problems with catastrophic failures of MBP batteries,.
