There have been 14 reports of the DVD players overheating so far, with seven reported fires. No injuries have been reported yet, thank goodness.

This ups the number of recalled units to 4.2 million, so please check your kids' rooms and warn your friends. You should probably tell your enemies, too, but I'll leave that decision up to you.
