The Inquirer claims they've had a chat with NVIDIA CEO Jen-Hsun Huang regarding the failing notebook chips:
THE INQ CAUGHT up with Nvidia CEO Jen Hsun Huang at his post key note Q&A earlier and asked him why the company wasn't disclosing information about their bad chips.

"How could you guys possibly even say that?" he replied, looking peeved. "The first person in the world who talked about the chip issue was me," he said, adding "I issued a press release with a 200 million dollar reserve and, in fact, our customers were saying 'Jen Hsun, why did you do that? "

Well, why did he do that? According to Huang, "The logic is impeccable. We know that there are some failures that are associated with our chips, we know that it's related to specific combination of the chip and the design of the notebook."
