Assault and Batteries

Great idea going with that, but why would an OS company be doing the hardware recall? It still made me laugh for a full 2 minutes.

Well, Ubersoft is not a direct correlation with Microsoft, it's an amalgam of every large company in the computer industry. I've referred to Ubersoft's hardware business in other storylines, though not very often.

Microsoft sells hardware -- mostly keyboards and mice, but it's just a small step to include other stuff.

This and five or so strips following deal with a mostly hardware-specific storyline.

Sweet, the UberThugs return! It's been how many years since they showed up?

It seems that Ubersoft and Dell aren't the only ones having trouble with laptop batteries ...
