This is pretty much the digital version of the local peasantry showing up at your front door with torches and pitchforks.
A small number of Retina MacBook Pro owners are calling for Apple to replace or repair their notebooks after discovering what appears to be irreparable damage to an antireflective screen coating layer, a problem the group has dubbed “staingate.”
The problems manifest themselves in the form of blotches, streaks and other anomalies attributed to faults in the antireflective coating applied to a Retina MacBook’s display surface. The origin of this “staining” is unknown, though some have speculated a combination of high humidity and over cleaning might be contributing factors.
