No Indium Shortage

Ars reports on the hysteria surrounding rising prices of some precious metals needed for electronics. The notion is that we're quickly running out of metal like Indium and Gallium. But this is really not true. Prices of some metals have increased, but not all. And new technologies are making many of the scarcer metals obsolete. A temporary spike in the derived demand of Indium due to lower prices for LCD panels is nothing to worry about.
