    In opening another chapter in corporate irresponsibility, Apple, the at times the biggest and perhaps richest company in the world, has taken a turn back from its claims of green technology. They've dropped out of EPEAT, the registry for green recyclable products, because the new MBPs are glued together and don't meet standards for recycling.

    Not to mention that mere mortals can't do any DIY work on them, which might, unfortunately, be the point.

    So not only are the machines harder to recycle, it's harder to service them and extend their useful life.

    I doubt this will dent Apple's bottom line. I'm not a particularly green person, but I do like fixing my own stuff. And Apple's move further away from the "personal" in personal computing saddens me.
