Earlier this morning Frode Ersfjord sent Steve Jobs this message:

“When is Apple going to start consistently producing iMac displays without; yellow tinge, grey bars and horrible backlight bleeds?

I’m sick of calling Apple Care. I don’t need perfect, just halfway decent.”

Today, he got this response from Apple CEO Steve Jobs:

This problem is behind us.

This seems to indicate that the 27-inch iMac issue is officially over, and Apple has confidently ruled out further iMac issues.  

Not that Apple didn’t already cryptically acknowledge that there were some issues and they’d been fixed.

In case you are wondering, El Jobso still rocks a 3.1.2 iPhone.
