Apple has worked hard lately at being recognized for its green efforts. They've touted their environmentally friendly manufacturing policies on their site, they've cut down on packaging, and they instituted a recycling program for all their old products.
But, they also work with suppliers out of China, a country not known for strong environmental policies or one unfamiliar with the backroom deal. And one of their suppliers is delivering a nice black eye to the company.
More pictures of the iPhone 4G have surfaced over at French tech blog, BeGeek. The photos look almost identical to the Vietnamese iPhone video that leaked on the web yesterday, so it's most likely that these photos are of the same unit. And, as it turns out, they come from a Vietnamese website as well.
Apple haters love to trot out the fact that the iPhone and iPod touch lack a physical keyboard. And of course, the first feature iPhone users notice about any rival keyboard-equipped smartphone is usually the microscopic keys. 4iThumbs attempts to bridge that gap, offering some of the tactile feedback of a hard keyboard without giving up all the benefits of the iPhone’s virtual keys.
Reports have surfaced that point to the iPhone being exclusive to AT&T until 2012. By then John Cusack will saved us all from the end of the world and the iPhone on Verizon will be the least of our worries.
Remember that brouhaha over at Gizmodo about the next generation iPhone? Well the story continues with super-secret informants. Riveting stuff.
