Apple Computers is giving us working proof that environmentalism fails in the face of business. If a company produces things made of solar power, we think that’s green, as in environmentally-friendly, right? But if that company attempts to patent this technology, therefore not wishing to share/spread/encourage all competition to do the same (we’re not in competition when the Earth’s life is at stake though!) – that’s not about saving the world at all, it’s about getting the edge = getting the green, but not lush leafy green; dark, dirty dollar signs green.

Dirty is right! And it’s not sexy. Sure, sitting out on my back patio un-plugging away on my fully wireless-ness until I can’t take the global Florida heat anymore sounds like an attractive prospect, but this – it’s not “hot”. In fact, I find it rotten.

We don’t regularly post eco blogs, so I’m going to list here the green social bookmarking sites we’ve submitted this post to, and actually link to the permalink there. Vote if you agree, and/or comment if you do or don’t!
