Can blog writer first do its own in-depth study for pros and cons of this type of unfounded surveys before writing and may be misleading reader in general? Or else this may be vendetta against Apple, may be highly innovative and responsible organization.
It seems like a combined attack toward Apple from different corner. As far as I know, Apple salutes most of the labour and environmental issues within their limitations and a company much aware about social commitments. I think the Fox con issue is not directly related to Apple and Apple products are one of the most power yielding devices, when compare with any competing products.
In recent time greenpeace is making quite confusing and political remarks. Perhaps, Apple may be far too advanced for them to understand concept of gree technology. People, soon avoid noticing greenpeace comments.
Wow! Reading your comment, it seems that Apple is the greenest company on earth? Hmm, See this 2011 Green Rankings and you will change your mind. Your greenest Apple is ranked 50th among 500 US ranked companies.
I thought software was especially minimal in its environmental footprint. Especially the cloud services that Facebook provides would seem to be devoid of environmental impact.
I'll have to take a closer look at how Greenpeace goes about ranking offenders. It's been a long time since they made news dodging the French navy, as they staged a direct action against nuclear bomb testing.
It seems Apple may have a technological problem in addition to being bashed by the media. Battery life of iProducts is notoriously short. The better performance of the iProds means battery depletion, and battery depletion means more frequent charging. Apple is not alone in this dilemma--better performing smart phones have the same drawback.
There are also two distinct aspects to a company's greening--its products and its in-house performance. Apple may well be building enviro-friendly facilities--I wonder if that should offset their product shortcomings (per Greenpeace. iFans love their products).
