If there's any company that's anxious for this year to end, it must be Sony. After being faced with PS3 shortages (and subsequent insanity
) not to mention that whole exploding batteries
thing, we've just woken up on Black Friday to the news that Sony will be recalling eight Cyber-shot models due to a defect in their LCDs. Sony apparently says that the problem, found in an unknown number of cameras sold worldwide between September 2003 and January 2005, is "caused by a glitch with the image sensor." But don't think that you'll automatically be getting a new shooter: Sony'll only be repairing models DSC-F88
, DSC-U40 and DSC-U50, which show signs of the problem.
