Apple Goes Green
It was only a matter of time, but The Green Apple is here, well metaphorically of course. A passionate campaign consisting of Greenpeace and Apple users have made their voices heard as Steve Jobs announced a change in policy today. While not every demand was met, Apple has declared a phase out of the worst chemicals in its product range, Brominated Fire Retardants (BFRs) and Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) by 2008. That beats Dell and other computer manufactures' pledge to phase them out by 2009. For now, the policy only stands in the United States, but a good first step nonetheless.
