14 million Xbox units need a new power cord


MSNBC is reporting that Microsoft has issued a recall of 14 million Xbox power cords. The cords have been overheating, causing burned skin and carpet. The company is promising the cords within 2 weeks of the request. They advise you to turn off your console when not in use, in the meantime. That's always a good thing to do, anyway, of course.
