Apple Abandons Green Certification

i_want_you_to_throw_ writes "Technology giant Apple is catching heat on blogs this week for its decision to drop out of an environmental certification program for electronics, called EPEAT. There's speculation that Apple's new line of "retina display" laptops aren't easily recyclable because their batteries are glued to the aluminum case on the computer. This decision is already costing Apple with the city of San Francisco deciding to no longer buy Apple computers. San Francisco also has a rule on the books prohibiting the city from purchasing desktop and laptop computers that are not EPEAT-certified, so the city will not be able to purchase Apple desktops and laptops unless Apple gets the green certification again."
