Sony Apologizes for Battery Disaster

I wonder why news always seems to come in droves from a particular source. Sony apologized today for inconveniences caused by its massive battery recall. Yutaka Nakagawa of Sony stated about the recalls at a press conference, “We would like to take this opportunity to apologize for the worries.”

The Associated Press writes:

The executives were seated while they bowed and did not bow deeply standing as most Japanese executives generally do in public apologies for troubles at their companies, underlining how Sony has been reluctant to admit fault in the troubles with its laptop batteries.

The recalls have affected a total of 9.6 million batteries manufactured between August 2003 and February of this year, the result of which has been less than stellar profits for the year. Hopefully Sony can soon begin to put this behind them.
