It's still the 800MHz version, isn't it? I updated the (OM) wiki for that bit.

"we" being Golden Delicious, or you and the SMD-fab? By the way, I was looking for image results for "Open Apple" and found the Freerunner while searching for "golden delicious bug", another result was at http://postharvest.tfrec.wsu.edu/marketdiseases/Apples/codling_moth2.jpg which might not make the perfect logo ;-)
