  1. Apple has been at the receiving end of increasing criticism from environmental campaigners Greenpeace recently. This has resulted in considerable attention being paid to the Cupertino-based firm's energy-intensive datacenters, which...

  2. Apple will probably patent the use of solar energy for any technological devices. That way they can sue every other company that want to use solar power.

    So Greenpeace has their heads squarely up their backside. This isn't news.

    It really annoys me when environmentalists whine about dirty power. If it weren't for them we'd all be using nuclear, which is the only alternative to coal capable of producing enough power to make a difference.
  5. maybe apple will patent the way environmental campaigners are.... and they will sue greenpeace for using their patent to take care of the planet...what other purpose they have? being a clean company? no way

    There would be other alternatives if enough development process would of been put in them. Solar is the future, harnessing the Suns is the future, unless we find something even better.

    While Nuclear power is mostly safe, if something does go wrong many will pay. Sadly there is still some business left in Oil, so for the next 20 years we will still be using this low life source of energy until we fully convert into clean renewable energy due to depleting the sources of Oil.

    Also within next 10-20 years we will see large developments in renewable energy and especially solar which will be installed in majority of the homes of citizens. Eventually there won't be need for electric bills unless you ran out and need extra. This of course would be bad for business, hence the Energy Corporations fear that since they "might" go out of business.

    Anyway.

    Meanwhile Solyndra blew up in the face of the Obama Administration and said Administration has to slap tariffs on Chinese solar panels, accusing them of "dumping" their panels in the United States.

    Solar is as much the future for our country as the typewriter was.
