In 2001, they touted Titanium. They Failed. Then they turned to anodised aluminium. They Failed once again. It’s been slightly more than a day since the Macbook came out. It seems that it flakes. They probably failed again…Where did that QA dept. go?
In other news, OS X is no longer Open Source at any level  as Apple removed the source for the Intel version of the OS. Very sad. Back in 2002 they were advertising its ‘Openness’:

The Darwin project coordinates contributions from thousands of programmers in the open source community. Through the open source model, Apple engineers and the open source community collaborate to create a better, faster and more reliable foundation for Mac OS X.
I guess all that rhetoric just joined the QA dept. 🙂
