Pedal power or nothing

Since they claim that Li-ion batteries "were inherently dangerous and were capable of igniting and causing a fire, even if properly in use within the tablet."... are they basically suing Apple for having one in the iPad?

Interesting... I mean: not surprising since in the USA you can sue BMW (and win) for not haveing a loud enough alarm to remind you that you parked your car on a slope and you should pull the handbrake, but still.

If this sets a precedent, before you know the yanks will only be able to use pedal-powered... everything that can't be constantly plugged into the mains.

Nice move.
