They are great folks to work with, who do great work. We’ll give you a sneak peak of something fresh very, very soon.
Greenpeace International has ranked Apple at the bottom of the list for ‘green technology’ companies. The Greenpeace spokesperson noted that Apple had failed to stop using several types of harmful chemicals in its manufacturing and, further, has not set any timetable for phasing them out.
Needless to say, Apple stopped cooperating with Greenpeace on this report…oh, right around the time Greepeace launched their spoof site.
Looking at the report, the companies ranked is far from exhaustive, but looks like this: Lenovo, Nokia, Sony Ericcson, Dell, Samsung, Motorola, Fujitsu-Siemens, Hewlett Packard, Acer, Toshiba, Sony, LG.Electronics, Panasonic and Apple.
Somehow I get the feeling these guys are not the biggest corporate offenders out there…
Everyday, most of us walk out our front door reasonably assured that we’ll have a decent day navigating the ups and downs of everyday work and family life. As adults, typically we don’t fear for our lives every moment of the day as we pass through life.
Unfortunately due to death threats, this is now how Kathy Sierra has been living her life. While Kathy may have not stepped out onto a real street, as a blogger the virtual streets of the internet have proved to be much more terrifying. Kathy recently canceled a number speaking engagements due to a number of threats that she has received on her blog and others.
In these days of To Catch a Predator, we all know how easily online communication can translate into real world action. The threats by this unknown individual have caused Kathy to fear for her safety, and are definitely illegal and repugnant. No one should be subjected to this type of behavior, and it is my sincerest hope that the individual(s) responsible are caught and punished.
If you get a chance, stop by Kathy’s blog, Creating Passionate Users, and share a few words of support.
