What the crap? This hardly makes any sense. If there is a point to the article, I couldn't see it. Sloppy and confusing writing on what seems to be a non-story.

Do you know what the word 'yield' means in the way it's used here?
:rolleyes:

Yes, it is a noun here and not a verb, but it is not a very easily understandable choice for phrasing that information.

Did you read the short article? It also doesn't seem to be saying anything distinctly. Apple touch screens are going to be 90%, as well as other manufacturers.... what is the story?

In manufacturing, there's a certain amount of rejected units that don't pass quality control. They are saying that Apple has 10% rejection rate with touchscreens where competitors have a higher rejection rate. This translates into a more efficient, higher return manufacturing process that Apple is enjoying.

Maybe, but you said it more succinctly.

Or could it be that apple isn't holding standards as high as those with lower yields / higher rejection rates?
