Recalls For Everyone!
Toyota is still recalling automobiles. Other car manufactuers have issued them as well. Garmin is recalling over a 1.25 million Nuvi portable navigation units for fear of problems with overheating batteries.
Over a half-a-billion eggs have been recently taken off the market. (I know, to many of you, a half-billion is not as big a number as it was three years ago, but it is still a bunch of eggs and a lot of disgruntled chickens!) And it was not that long ago that we sold a whole bunch of televisions as, by government decree, analog tuners were no longer acceptable with the shift to digital.
I have seven televisions spread between residences and before the digital revolution I had perhaps four. Was it really digital tuners that were responsible for the additional sets or the housing bubble that gave me more disposable income?
