Protesters demonstrate outside Apple HQ

A group of about 20 protesters picketed outside of Apple Headquarters in Cupertino, CA yesterday, complaining about the company’s policies on electronic waste recycling, reports Mercury News. The organizers say they intend a larger display outside San Francisco’s Moscone Center where Macworld Expo is being held this week. “Responding to years of criticism by environmental groups, Apple now offers its customers a fee-based computer take-back program,” notes the report. “And last week the company joined eBay’s ‘Rethink Initiative,’ which promotes e-waste recycling and provides consumers with information on how to dispose of junk electronic goods.”
