    Apple has teamed up with aluminum producers Alcoa and Rio Tinto on a joint venture aimed at smelting aluminum without emitting greenhouse gases.

    The tech company said Thursday that "revolutionary" new technology created by the project replaces the use of carbon, which is normally used in the smelting process, with an advanced conductive material.

    Through this method, oxygen is released as a result instead of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas, meaning the metal can be produced in an environmentally clean way.

    How about you (and other companies who do this) let people replace the broken parts of their computers instead of forcing them to sell/throw away when they run out of their warranty?
