stop drinking

BIG HOOS aka the steendriver, Sunday, 9 October 2011 08:50 (ten years ago) link

don't you mean "drink different"

lagerfeld of modern despots (latebloomer), Sunday, 9 October 2011 08:53 (ten years ago) link

think different, stop using adverbs

Autumn Almanac, Sunday, 9 October 2011 08:54 (ten years ago) link

It's amazing how sticky "Think Different" has been, for a shortish campaign in 97. You'd think it was hammered home for decades, like "Just Do It".

since this is the thread where it's getting the most play, good overview of apple's environmental harms in china

http://www.chinadialogue.net/article/show/single/en/4561

In her letter, Beinecke reminded Cook of the large number of problems listed in the IPE report – problems which need urgent attention. Examples include factories “chronically out of compliance” with environmental regulations, with as many as 10 or more violations; factories discharging toxic metals such as copper and nickel at levels that breach international safety standards; factories ignoring the health concerns of local communities; and problems with disposal of hazardous waste.

She stressed that the IPE report and Apple’s own audits had reached the same conclusion. According to “Apple’s Supplier Responsibility 2011 Progress Report”, many suppliers were found to be in severe breach of environmental laws – 80 of 127 factories had not properly stored or handled hazardous chemicals; 41 did not recycle or dispose of hazardous waste properly or as required by law; 37 did not monitor and control air emissions, and more than 10 had wastewater problems; 63 did not have the permits required by government authorities, including approval of their environmental impact assessments.

...

Beinecke pointed out that a crucial and prominent failing in Apple’s existing policies is that they focus on auditing tier one – final assembly – suppliers. “Although this step in the supply chain is often labour-heavy, it seldom is where the largest environmental footprint in the supply chain lies,” she wrote in her letter to Cook. On the contrary, tier two and tier three suppliers, the companies that manufacture components such as printed circuit boards (PCBs), are where many of the environmental problems have been found.

One supplier, who preferred to remain anonymous, told National Business Daily that the high density PCBs used in iPhones and iPads require a lot of power and water to manufacture, as well as large quantities of chemicals for etching the laminate. The process results in large quantities of air and water pollution, and environmental violations can easily occur.

excerpt from a documentary about foxconn workers.

conditions at foxconn not quite as bad as the media made it out to be. but still heartbreaking. I can't quite bring myself to condemn foxconn. life is hard, terrible in China if you are poor.

lol, I assume that includes being rude to people and rejecting philanthropy

Autumn Almanac (Schlafsack), Monday, 10 October 2011 00:32 (ten years ago) link

holding public philanthropy up as an absolute necessity kind of devalues the concept, dontcha think?

The Minnesota company that makes the black mock turtleneck that former Apple Inc. CEO Steve Jobs made famous is donating $20 to the American Cancer Society for every one it sells.

While St. Croix Collections sells more than 20 colors of the turtleneck, the company said Friday the donation will be paid only when the $175 sweater is bought in black — the color Jobs wore just about every time he was seen in public.

The announcement came a day after the founder of the Winona-based company told the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal that sales of the turtlenecks had doubled since Jobs died Wednesday at the age of 56.

that is a very expensive sweater. But then Steve Jobs was very rich.
