angry tapir writes "Hewlett-Packard will pay US$425,000 to settle a claim that it knowingly sold laptops with hazardous batteries that could overheat or catch fire. HP had learned of about 22 incidents involving the batteries by September 2007, but it failed to report the problem until 10 months later, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission."
