Fire Safety Reminder

Hundreds of Bloggers recently wrote about the Dell Laptop fires and the Dell/Sony Battery Recall.  While most Blogs repeated the same facts, I thought it was a good time to remind everyone that fire prevention and computers should always be taken very serious.

This should be a wake up call to anyone who has more then one power strip under their desk. I have had a number of positive comments from readers and thought I’d do what I could to make it as easy as possible.

Below are a number of products you can purchase today from Amazon and never leave your chair.
