Interesting that you mention this! I love my PowerBook to death...but then again, I'm a big fan of breathing and drinking clean water, too.

What to do in the meantime? Upgrade instead of buying new, and find new uses for stuff that's too old -- because "toxic waste can't be recycled." Just the other day, I turned an old Toshiba 486 notebook into a digital picture frame using a shadow box and some mat board.

Of course, this isn't a permanent solution. William McDonough wrote a great book called "Cradle to Cradle" about harmonizing technology and the environment through a firm commitment to zero waste. Might be worth a read.

Thanx for sharing this. i had no idea. what are we to do? Apple ought to change, especially ince they are part of Bono's red one campaign to help fight AIDS in Africa.

Have a look at the .mAct page on the Greenpeace site for ideas/action
