Apple Steve Jobs writes about Apple's efforts to become a more enironmental friendly company. "Apple has been criticized by some environmental organizations for not being a leader in removing toxic chemicals from its new products, and for not aggressively or properly recycling its old products. Upon investigating Apple's current practices and progress towards these goals, I was surprised to learn that in many cases Apple is ahead of, or will soon be ahead of, most of its competitors in these areas. Whatever other improvements we need to make, it is certainly clear that we have failed to communicate the things that we are doing well." Among other things, Apple will introduce LEDs in displays to Macs this year.

Yeah, that sounds right...just like that time when Sony had those supposedly PS3s at E3. When they were really hooked up to computers...okay dumb analogy.

But just because the power comes from sources - does it really mean that it's going towards an end product that contributes to "greener" matters? If it doesn't than how much of an improvement is it?
