iPhone 4 Screen Turns Yellow - In Support of Noynoy Aquino?

Fine. Corny. ;P

Yesterday, Engadget reported that there are a number of iPhone 4 owners who are noticing unwanted yellow spots or bars on the retina display screen of their spanking new iDevice.

Quoting the website:

Out, damned spot! out, I say! One; two: why, then, 'tis time to do 't. Hell is murky! Fie, my lord, fie! Reports are coming in from some of those lucky early iPhone 4 users that there may exist a not-so-lucky yellow coloration in the bottom right corner of the IPS LCD.



Yikes.

Thankfully, following borderline-panic by iPhone 4 owners who are seeing yellow and those who've yet to receive their pre-ordered units, someone at AppleInsider offered a quite decent explanation to the anomaly and assured everyone that the dreaded spots should magically disappear after a day or so of use:

Apple is using a bonding agent called Organofunctional Silane Z-6011 to bond the layers of glass. Apparently, Apple (or more likely Foxconn) is shipping these products so quickly that the evaporation process is not complete. However, after one or two days of use, especially with the screen on, will complete the evaporation process and the yellow "blotches" will disappear. How do I know? I was involved in pitching Z-6011 to Apple.

Uhm... alright.
