  Exactly.  And the Mac mini has never really been a player in the "lower-priced segment" of the PC market, but it was never priced that way.  And therefore it didn't completely undermine the higher margin models.  I don't see how the same could be done with phones.  Giving away iPhones at (just above) cost in the developing markets will just alienate consumers outside those markets.
No it pretty much implies that it'll go away on it's on and doesn't need to be fixed (until Jan 1-6 2013 happens again).  Does make you wonder how this particular bug was introduced.

Would you mind giving us a few sentences of context about caps and tantalum caps for those of us who aren't electrical engineers and have no idea what you're talking about?  If it's something that will effect this computer 20 years from now I'm not going to lose any sleep over it.
