About a week ago our manufacturer informed us that they were having issues getting the plastic to match the shade of white (yes, there is such a thing) that Apple uses in their products. They sounded very concerned about it, so they sent us three samples of the range of colors that our docks would see in production. Immediately, I'm thinking, "This is going to be a disaster, the docks are going to come out beige and look generally terrible." As a designer I've spent many an hour with Pantone color swatches debating the virtues of PMS2746C versus PMS2736C so I'm pretty well trained in the art of being annoyingly picky about colors. When the plastic samples arrived I honestly can't tell the difference between them, even in bright sunlight. So I'm pretty happy with the "shade of white" they were able to come up with, and more importantly the manufacturer's attention to detail is remarkable.
