Silver Panic Imminent? Apple Contractor Claims New iMac Production Delayed Over Silver Shortage!
Submitted by Bally A.

I work as a sales contractor for a local independent Apple dealer. I don’ know how many of you closely watch Apple delivery dates, but we received a consignment of the new 21.5″ iMacs and then they dried up. We haven’t received any of the new 27″ iMacs. Our shelves are bare with lots of backorders. I’ve never seen this before.

The new “Iris” screens use a lot, lot more silver than the older models, including the new iPads. All the silver is going to produce the iPad 4′s which, of course, use less silver per unit. This creates the illusion that all is right except for a few “production glitches”.

Why is a silver shortage the likely culprit for the production delays? The 21.5″ iMac screens are essentially the same as the 27″ screens. Inside, there is little difference other than the width of the systems where you have enough width to have 4 RAM slots and thus upgrade the the RAM. There are no RAM slots on the new 21.5″ iMac, i.e. you get what you bought re. RAM.

Unlikely it's a silver shortage that's the cause, but I've got my fingers crossed. ;-) The U.S. Mint DID just suspend production of ASE's (American Silver Eagles) and says they won't be able to produce more until the 28th, but I read the supplier of Apple's displays has been having lamination issues with the unusual new construction of the new iMac displays, especially the 27 inch one. Do I believe that? Hell, I dunno. But if it isn't happening now, sometime in the near future (within the next few years, I'd imagine), there WILL be a silver shortage. And electronics manufacturers will be delaying production and shipment of just about everything.

US Mint runs out of 2013 silver coins

NEW YORK - The U.S. Mint has suspended sales of its 2013 American Eagle silver bullion coins after running out of stock due to soaring investor demand for the newly minted coins in the first two weeks of the year.

The religion of submission cannot survive an open and honest discussion of its convoluted and foolish scriptures, its sexually perverted terrorist prophet, or its deceitful and demented god. When Western leaders become unified and resolute in their hostility to Islam's violent and ungodly beginnings, Muslims will flee the religion because they will be horrified by its endorsement of terrorism, mass murder, slave trading, plunder, kidnapping, and rape.

If Muslims & their apologists really want to cure "Islamophobia," here is an easy way. Focus their indignation on Muslims committing violent acts in the name of Islam, not on non-Muslims reporting on those acts.

"I believe that an industrial silver shortage is at the heart of Apple’s delays. Nevertheless, if Apple can’t get it’s silver in necessary quantities, the amount or short term price or Comex price doesn’t really matter. If Apple can’t obtain enough to supply demand, they can only delay orders, delay production, and delay the inevitable.
That inevitability is that silver pricing must go up, while silver production stays flat at best.
I’ll bet a dollar to a donut that Apple knew about this shortage of silver in China, and that was why it increased it retail price $100 per low end iMac.
Apple was attempting to front run the higher price of silver within China itself, where Apple produces its products and has, obviously made deals with the Chinese gov’t as to price and availability as regards to silver.
With China now importing more silver than the massive amounts it produces, China probably abrogated its deal with Apple and that there is some sort of rationing deal amongst the Computer manufacturers and other silver using manufacturers".

As I posted before, I don't think we can really know whether there's a silver shortage at the moment, at least to the degree that it would adversely affect Apple's ability to produce its 27 inch iMac, but I just checked their website and not only do they list delivery of the 27 inch iMac as being delayed the same 3-4 weeks as it did when the contractor supposedly spilled the beans on the reason for the delays, but now the 21.5 inch iMacs are listed as being delayed by 2-3 weeks as well (they were listed as being delayed by 7-10 days before). That seems VERY fishy to me. Either there really IS a silver shortage, or Apple can't figure out how to produce and distribute their products in a timely manner anymore and the company is falling apart. This definitely bears watching.

I think the Silver "Bolstering" going on right now along with the platinum/Palladium movements, German/Netherland Goldrepatriation, HSBC Silver purchase, India Import Duty on Gold, BIS reclassification and many others are why I think that Silver is a diversion for Gold investors so that they will allocate big money to Silver instead of Gold. Has anyone ever seen so much Silver pumping (before any price movement) in their lives as is going on right now ?
