Greenpeace forced out of Apple Mac Expo
According to a report on YubaNet.com, the environmental group Greenpeace has been forced out of Mac Expo 2006 in London. "Greenpeace's high profile 'Green my Apple' stall was shut-down today at the start of the Mac Expo," notes the story. "Organizers of the Mac Expo claimed they had received complaints from unnamed sources. The Greenpeace stall was bought for the three-day expo in an attempt to raise awareness about concerns over the use of toxic chemicals in Apple's products."
This is a major hassle for Apple to have to deal with such a non issue. Greenpeace badgers Apple for one reason and one alone - publicity!
