All the MS News You Can Use

Lately, I've been harping on about our new site RedmondReport.com, a portal for news about Microsoft. I've been bragging so much I figured I'd take a look this morning and see if it's as good as I said it was -- and it is!

My favorite story is one we picked up from Wired. It turns out that one of worst high-tech companies for the environment is that touchy-feely outfit from Cupertino with Al Gore on its board.

Yup. Good, old Apple evidently makes iPhones with toxic materials, doesn't even know how much CO2 it emits and has no real plan to reduce its greenhouse gases.

Maybe the next time Steve Jobs flies across the country on the Gulfstream V Apple bought him, he can think up a plan. By the way, Jobs' plane holds some 41,300 pounds of fuel and uses about 64 pounds per nautical mile. That's even worse than my '96 Cadillac.
