A glitch that causes display problems on Intel-based iMacs under certain circumstances has been confirmed by Apple. The problem, first reported by one Mac user on his blog, occurs mainly when using the Front Row program to display video, and consists of "faint and intermittent patches of whatever graphics are on the screen appearing in random locations," along with ghosting and horizontal lines. Apple has responded by saying that the company "is aware of this issue and is looking into it," and by recommending that concerned customers contact AppleCare for support. However, there's currently no recommended solution. The original user who discovered the problem does have one suggestion, though: "Convince yourself that Front Row is stupid, pointless, and unnecessary eye-candy and never, ever use it."
