The Rockaways are in a state of emergency. They haven't had power in a week, and it doesn't appear to be coming back any time soon.

Question of the Day: Do You Care if a Company is "Green" When it Comes…

As I am sure you know, Greenpeace has been all over Apple about it not being more eco-friendly with regard to its products. Needless to say, the term "hippie" gets thrown around quite a bit when we discuss these issues, but there is no doubt that there is a lot of pressure on companies to go green these days.

The iPhone is Hazardous to the Environment, According to Greenpeace

Greenpeace has slammed Apple once again on environmental issues, claiming that scientific tests they arranged uncovered hazardous chemicals in the iPhone. I'm sorry, but I have a hard time believing that Apple is the only phone maker that has these toxic chems, considering that the plants that iPhones are built in… » 10/15/07 6:00pm 10/15/07 6:00pm

Apple Still Not Green Enough, According to Greenpeace Wackjobs

Greenpeace reponds to El Jobso's letter declaring Apple a greener company. All that sweet talk just ain't enough for the tree humpers. (Not even the promise of LED backlit LCDs? Okay, fine.) According to their scale, the new measures will bring Apple to a 5.0 on their 10 point scale (that's up from the 2.7 they were… » 5/03/07 9:22pm 5/03/07 9:22pm
