Why I Don’t Need a New Phone 2010

I think I don’t even need to check present policy but please tell me if you have contrary knowledge; the whole world’s governments and industries are terribly behind in cleaning up after themselves and Australia is not even close to being at the forefront of the movement if at all.

    Wow… Thats a lot of old phones. However im sure the iPhone 4G does look awefully cool to the crowds of fanboys out there, and im sure many people have thrown away their “old and delapadated” iPhone 3GS, in favour of a “much better” and “completely different” 4G… Wow my keyboard has almost melted from a sarcasm overload.

    On a more serious note, I wonder just how many precious metals such as silver, gold and copper that all of those phones hold. Must be worth a fair amount to own all of those old phones. Its a bit of a walk down memory lane looking at all of those phones.

    Great post, very evocative.

    Yes, making it so some shark in a suit can make money from it is one way of dealing with the problem. The other is consumer power, but we know which one currently resides on top.
