Bad RAM or something else?

I recently bought a new Macbook Pro (2.3 i5) and almost immediately put 8GB 1333Mhz DDR3 RAM in it. Almost immediately, I got a kernel panic, and then Chrome would crash every once in a while. I have also had occasional crashes of Pages, MailPlane, and BusyCal, but no more panics. It has been about a week or so since I installed the RAM. Do you think I have a bad memory stick, or is this occasional crashiness related to something else? [more inside]

Am I being too uptight about my Macbook screen?

I have an appointment to see the Mac Geniuses tomorrow regarding my Macbook's screen, which looks rather dim. However, I'm not sure if I'm asking too much, since I know the older displays dim over time. I have some photos inside comparing my Macbook to an almost identical model that is one year older than mine. Could you take a look at these pics and let me know what my chances are of getting a repair? [more inside]

I don't like sticky everywhere.

I used some clear adhesive wrist protectors on my white MacBook, and after removing them, all of the adhesive is stuck on my Mac's wrist rest. What is the safest way to clean the gunk off? Goo Gone? iKlear? Something else?
