MacExpo Photo Gallery and Greenpeace goes after Apple's iWaste


If you're not one of the roughly 25,000 people in London for MacExpo this week,, you missed the Greenpeace "Green my Apple" booth being shut down by event organizers at the beginning of the Expo due to "complaints from unnamed sources." We think that might be marketing speak for "threats of bodily harm from Uncle Steve's distant cousin Vinny Knuckles Tony Soprano." The Greenpeace booth (and the accompanying parody site) was intended to raise awareness about concerns over Apple's use of toxic chemicals (um.. iWaste) in certain products as well as other environmental concerns. I guess shrinking a few boxes just doesn't cut it.

And if you prefer visuals, MacNN has some nice MacExpo show floor porn that will make you swear you were actually there, sore feet, bag-o-swag and all. Check out their gallery.
