Satire: Apple's New Green Line of Products... [VIDEO]
Unveiling his iPhone gewgaw with a prank call to Starbuck's (so cute Steve!), Apple manages to avoid going green. Again.
Note to self: don't get too sanctimonious when you're writing this on an Apple laptop.
Apple isn't the world's worst company -- not by a long shot -- but Greenpeace, which produced the satirical video here, has been detailing the terrible costs of Apple products to the environment and to the manufacturers of its parts:
