A couple emails hit my inbox today about HP and Dell “going green”. While I think that’s overstating matters a bit, a Mercury News story does describe two new programs: “HP said it will accept old electronics equipment, from PCs to TVs, that are dropped off at Office Depot outlets across the country from July 18 to Sept. 6, free of charge. … And Dell went one further: It will pick up old computers and their accessories at the homes of customers. The catch: You have to buy a new Dell.” Carnegie-Mellon has also had a nice Green Design page about environmentally friendly computer design and recycling.
