In public statements and private briefings to reporters and
analysts, it has shifted from claiming these bugs are overblown and
not a problem, to admitting they are a problem but are easy to
mitigate, to confessing they are not so easy to mitigate but at
least there are no ill effects, to conceding there are some ill
effects but it's nothing to worry about, to finally confirming: the
issues are so embarrassing, we've redesigned our processors to
address the design blunders.
