    Have you actually read the report that backs up the assertions in this page? The 'important' things in the measure are only what companies say, not what they do. There is one substantive measure, PVC-free and BFR-free products. First, using 'free' meaning none used is a terrible criteria as there may be good environmental reasons to use small amounts of almost any material as their use might save the use of much larger amounts of other non-safe materials. Thin, light plastic packaging vs heavier weak paper may save a free trees. Second, even in this report almost all the computer companies are the same. They only thing they want 'greened' at Apple are words. I'd rather have actions, which it seems Apple has taken.

    Wow. I am stunned. You have a long memory (about my being short AAPL calls).

    Yes, I would be very grumpy if I had sold my calls at $100. I had actually sold for $120.

    That said, at the rate things are going, it looks like I am going to be REALLY grumpy in a few months......\

    Have they stopped selling all non RoHS compliant products outside the EU yet? I think you'll find the answer is no.

    "All Apple products worldwide comply with RoHS."
