Tech giants warp eco standards to greenwash electronics, rake in cash

Re: Repair != Green

Has the replacement battery from Dodgy Dave's Emporium been produced in a factory with zero environmental standards?

Maybe the only reason people are buying replacements from Dodgy Dave is because there are no official replacements available. Nothing to do with the companies wanting you to buy a new device when the battery predictably fails of course (probably just outside the warranty period), despite everything else still being fully serviceable.

The Centre for Computing History, mentioned at the end of the article, is a good shout for enthusiast visitors to Cambridge. They allow you to get hands on with most of the kit there and play quite a few old game consoles. Nice to actually see how the kit has changed through the years.
