12/17/2013, Recalls are no fun, and they definitely do not do any kind of justice or favors to the particular device in question, either. After all, who would want to purchase goods from a company that rolls out defective items in the future? Well, people do make some mistakes at times, and Google as well as HP happen to be the guilty party this time around with a recall of the […]

The repercussions of […]
08/20/2012, The Fisker Karma hybrid car is certainly one mean looking machine, but that does not mean it has no issues of its own to work out. No thanks to a faulty cooling fan, Fisker has issued a recall for their set of wheels, the Fisker Karma – all 2,400 of them sedans. I suppose this has been long overdue, ever since we read about how a Fisker Karma actually burnt […]
05/09/2012, Boy, do we hate recalls. After all, it just goes to show that things do get pear shaped once in a while, and Lenovo has stepped forward to announce that they will be recalling 188,000 ThinkCentre all-in-one machines that fall under the M70z and M90z model numbers.

01/17/2012, BMW has issued a recall for nearly 89,000 Mini-branded cars in the US, where that will include the Mini Cooper range, because of the presence of faulty water pumps which have the possibility of malfunctioning, and that alone might cause engine compartment fires.

12/30/2011, I am not quite sure how you would be able to drive without your vehicle having any brake pads, but somehow, over 4,000 units of 2012 Chevrolet Sonic subcompact cars have already been sold, where they all do miss out on their brake pads – be it inner or outer, either way, the main reason they are there is to increase stopping distance. Good thing for General Motors, the mother […]

Unfortunately, the Jawbone Up has run into battery problems […]
11/13/2011, Have you ever wondered what took so long for Apple to discover that their first generation iPod nano actually might suffer from the issue of an overheating battery?

11/09/2011, Toyota did gain quite the reputation as a reliable vehicle that delivered plenty of bang for your hard earned buck, but recent times have seen the motor vehicle manufacturer drop a notch from their previously lofty perch. Well, today is not about bouquets but brickbats rather, where the Japanese motoring giant is said to recall around 550,000 vehicles from around the globe. Most of these would be from the US, […]
