@Susan, i suspect that for small and mid-sized manufactures that this may present a budget challenge, at least initially. I don't think there's anything inherent in the technology or approach that would discourage them. Hopefully, larger organizations will make it common practice and then smaller organizations can hop on the bandwagon.

Ashish, 

I am not talking about being with them as a jouralist. I was close to them in business situations. I had another career before, and it involved being with executives daily, close to their work. I don't think I am interested in discussing this here. 

Another thing is I don't like generalizing, and you are doing it so saying all of them are irrational. Don't apply the same to everyone, it's unfair.

Susan,

But that still brings the important question-Have you done Business with them?

Being embedded with them as a Journalist does'nt get you the Hands on view of their Irrationality.

For that you have to do Business with them regularly.

That's when you realize how irrational they are.

Ashish, 

You are wrong on this one about me. I have spent good close time working with C-level execs in big, international companies, in different countries. You shouldn't pre-judge for my comments on rationality. Don't forget I always bring thoughts of reason into the topics.

I didn't say you were not right. I said what it should be, which doesn't mean it's the reality of the matter.

Susan,

Its clear you have'nt spent much time up,close and personal with most Senior Executives.

I have been lucky to do so.

And believe me on this(we can fight over other issues happily) but on this one I know I am right.

You need a tremendous degree of Irrationality inside of You to Reach the Top and Stay at the Top.

Regards

Ashish.

Hailey, 

Why do you think this is not the solution for every manufacturer? And what would it be a better solution for them?

_hm, 

Would you care to explain why you think it's slow, and expensive? What proof do you have? And why wouldn't you justify the expense? Do you think the best solution is to keep on accumulating eWaste, shipping it to India, and China, where pullutes both humans, and the environment? You don't live there, do you?
