Windows The past few weeks or so, there's been a lot of interest in a supposed battery status report bug in Windows 7. After installing Windows 7, some users reported seeing "consider replacing your battery"-warnings in systems that appeared to be operating just fine on Windows XP or Vista. After extensive research, Steven Sinofsky has now explained on the Engineering 7 blog that the fault is not with Windows 7 - it really, really is your battery.

Batteries *sigh*

So tiresome to see your laptop's battery life slowly degrade over the years. And all of these "breakthroughs in battery technology" that keep popping up in the news never seem to amount to anything. Laptops are still using Li-ion batteries, right?

PS: "the battery was already in need of replacement, but XP nor Vista had the ability to report that to you."
Shouldn't that be "neither XP nor Vista"?
