    just goes to show all those tree huggers had no idea what they were bitching about in the first place
    ‘Our great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately controlled. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of men.’ - Woodrow Wilson

      Good ol PR BS. Apple did not cave into demands because of a bunch of environmental nutjobs - they did it because it helped out their bottom line. It's not like they are targeting the smelly hippie demographic - Their design & performance goals happened to match the goals of the environmentalists and they are going to milk it for all it's worth.

      Removing CRT's was done to streamline the product line and exploit the higher margins and design elements of LCD's

      Removal of the Arsenic (LED Backlighting for displays) will reduce power consumption therefor extending the battery life of their notebooks.

      I actually saw this last week on some greenpeace blog (hit digg's front page I think) This is nothing more than FREE positive PR promoting how great apple is ... and personally I love it - Apple Stock trading at almost $104

      Apple plans to reduce and eventually eliminate the use of mercury by transitioning to LED backlighting for all displays when technically and economically feasible.
      Some advice is profound, some is clever. The above post is a good example of both.

        Heaven forbid Adobe Bevel and Extrude give you a classic Roman profile for a letter form.
        Unless there is a plugin out there that gives additional profiles, getting that effect is going to require...

        Reply to Alternative to offset for metallic printing ?
        We have a digital printer (fuji xerox Color 1000i) that prints silver and gold metallic toner. It's a lot cheaper than offset, especially for small runs and even one offs.
