Blink Different, Redux

imagesApple on Monday delivered another firmware fix intended to resolve the display issues that have plagued some of its 27-inch iMacs since the new machines debuted Oct. 20. A 294KB download available directly from Apple (AAPL), the update promises to “address issues that may cause intermittent display flickering” for iMacs released in late 2009. It follows by about six weeks another update that claimed to do the same thing, evidently without much success.

As I write, there are some 270 pages of comments and complaints about the issue on Apple’s support forums. Meanwhile, rumors are circulating that Apple has halted production of the 27-inch iMac until it can resolve its display issues.
