Continental Europe's first Apple Store - Italy's Roma Est
- received a huge number of visitors this past weekend, including Greenpeace
. One representative, dressed as "Eva," offered a fig leaf-wearing "Ecco Steve Jobs" a green, eco-friendly Apple. The couple also brought two large, "green" iPod cutouts. If Google's Italian-to-English translation
is accurate, they were eventually asked to leave.
Greenpeace has been after Apple to stop using toxic materials in manufacturing of their machines for quite
a while now
. If there's one thing you can say about these folks, it's that they're persistent.
