Apple Pulls Massive U-Turn Over Green Credential Outrage

By Sam Gibbs on at

Looks like Apple's suddenly rethought skipping out on the EPEAT environmental rating scheme. It seems when people start banning orders of Apple products, new post-Jobs Apple is quite happy to make sudden U-turns to protect its profits.

Whether or not you think the whole thing was blown way out of proportion, all over that gorgeous new Retina Display MacBook Pro, it seems like the famous iron will of Apple that Steve Jobs bestowed on the company is crumbling. I'm pretty sure Jobs wouldn't have allowed such a drastic, oh-no-we-must-protect-our-profits U-turn like this. Oh well, it's probably better for the environment at least. [Apple]

Thanks Jeff!
