    Jose Munoz-Olaya, a MacBook owner and molecular biologist from Spain's Canary Islands, took this photo of his stained MacBook.

    "They look like a shadow, grey in color and at first it was rather difficult to see. But things only got worse," he said. "As time goes on, the stains are more and more visible and nothing I can do will stop that."

As of Friday afternoon, his site lists 76 MacBook owners from around the globe who are experiencing the problem and have listed their device's serial number.
