iBook G4 Battery Recall

There's a recall of IBook G4 and Powerbook batteries going on. Appreantly it is all web-based (don't bother calling the 800 number according to Macintouch). Might as well wait a week or so before I check to see if our battery is affected since it sounds like Apple's site is overwhelmed with requests.

New Los Lobos Album special

Los Lobos has a new web site and a new album coming out in September. You can preorder through the site. For $10 more, you get a t-shirt or a live cd of a 1984 show. For $20 more, you get both. The first 100 pre-orders will receive a CD insert autographed by the band.Ther's even a little context involving a guitar and ticket giveaway. Very cool.

There's also a new two-part interview with Levi over at Cycling News: Part 1, Part 2.
