    I liked that you tackled the topic of electronic waste, especially with a blog centered on consumer waste. In reference to the Natural News article, you mention that Natural News exaggerates how poorly Apple is doing in terms of e-waste recycling an doesn’t provide a fair comparison to other articles. I think the purpose of this piece was to inform americans that in comparison to companies in China which many americans consider to have low standards in terms of waste disposal etc that Apple, a American based corporation isn’t doing nearly as much to stem the problem. The article makes the comparison between Apple and Lenovo to prove that corporations can make changes to minimize e-waste, but simply that Apple has not. This is demonstrated when the article states that Lenovo came in last place in rankings from the previous year.

    In reference to The Economist, this blog suggests that this is clearly the unbiased version of reporting on Apple. Although I whole-heartedly agree that The Economist is a more reputable publication and provides more evidence, the target of the article is still Apple. It is mentioned that the article mentions good aspects of Apple’s attempts to being green and that this makes it less weighted against Apple. Yet after reading the article, it seemed that the strategy entailed showing what Apple states what it is doing to limit e-waste and then offering a criticism from both Greenpeace and the author of The Economist about how little Apple is doing in the grand scheme of things.

    Overall I did think this was a good analysis however I would suggest proofreading a little (I had the same problem haha).
