I can teach Apple a thing or two...

Amo's iBook G4 is *just* out of range of the battery recalls. Whew!

The odd thing is that all the tech notes tell you that to find the serial number on an iBook, you have to pry open the machine and look under the keyboard (ok, pry is exaggerating, but you get my drift). In reality, all you have to do is look in the System Profiler app; the serial number is listed on the main Hardware tab. I copied and pasted and it validated the serial number as an affected model, so I know it's correct. Why wouldn't Apple's detailed tech notes mention this very simple alternative?

College football starts this Thursday and my class at GWU starts in two weeks. Here comes Fall!!!!

Update: My class now has 8 students! Wooohoo!
