Now this does open up the question as to why Apple didn't leave
CardBus enabled. I could see it being a problem if it meant adding
parts/labor, but it sounds like both solutions mentioned here are
removing a circuit. Then again, maybe they didn't know they had a
problem until later in production, at which time they fixed the
Japanese Mighty Cats.
