So reports are that, and that Samsung is supplying the Retina screens on the new iPad. If apple acknowledged the backlight bleed from the previous iPad - anybody think it's now addressed/fixed?

Who said they "acknowledged the backlight bleed?"

Somehow I suspect that wasn't their concern at the time :D

note: I seem to recall reading that it was the yield they were worried about.

I'm saying if they did since the reports are that LG and Sharp failed to meet quality standards, and now it's strictly Samsung providing the displays (perhaps its now fixed).

Also during that whole fiasco last year genius were told and allowed to do only a 1-time exchange for the backlight bleed. So it looks like they did know about it.
