BBC on India’s Computer Waste

This article I got from ArsTechnica. India seems to be having a growing problem of computer waste from their IT boom.

Obligatory comments:

Thirty million computers are thrown out every year in the US alone, and many are dumped in India and China.

In Europe, manufacturers will have to eliminate such harmful substances inside the machines by 2006.

Persoanlly I think computer waste is going to become a big problem in the future. Until more people work on figuring out how to recycle these things in a nice manner…
