Augmento writes "Green Peace has issued a report card on the environmental friendliness of some major manufacturers;
"Nokia and Dell share the top spot in the ranking. They believe that as producers they should bear individual responsibility for taking back and reusing or recycling their own-brand discarded products. Nokia leads the way on eliminating toxic chemicals, since the end of 2005 all new models of mobiles are free of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and all new components to be free of brominated flame retardants (BFRs) from the start of 2007. Dell has also set ambitious targets for eliminating these harmful substances from their products.
Third place goes to HP, followed by Sony Ericsson (4th), Samsung (5th), Sony (6th), LG Electronics (7th), Panasonic (8th), Toshiba (9th), Fujitsu Siemens Computers (10th), Apple (11th), Acer (12th) and Motorola (13th).
Lenovo is in bottom position. It earns points for chemicals management and providing some voluntary product take back programmes, but it needs to do better on all criteria."

I stopped paying for an add-on slot for the domain, i still own it it just redirects to my guild wars site for now. you can still access all my swinefood at http://www.tyria.net/augmenton
so, the whole home processor field is pretty much locked between AMD and Intel. how hard would it be to break into this market? Could I start by building processors in my garage? Or maybe, get somebody fresh out of the CPU making track of graduate school and team up for venture capital?
Ok. a bit tongue in cheek but it seems to me that there is an opportunity here.
