Description:: Climate Counts, a nonprofit organization that aims to directing consumers toward the greenest companies, and Greenpeace, the environmental group of which you’ve doubtless heard, need to get together and try to find a meaningful way to rank the “green-ness” of tech companies.

Well, its really green for Steve Jobs' bank accounts. As for environmental impact, its one of many areas where they could improve. Starting with a mouse that doesn't wind up in the trash bin in 90 days.

The above is a very good link. The people that are doing the searching or this material are doing a horrible job.

These surveys/ratings need to shape up--or be replaced by legitimate ones.

Not because they are unfair to a corporation called Apple that makes my OS of choice. (That unfairness is annoying but relatively harmless to me or Apple.)

But because they are unfair to environmental efforts, giving them a bad name at a time when ALL of us need those efforts to be effective. That's a whole lot more important than what's "fair" to some computer company.
