Apple iPhone 5 harmful to the environment

If you buy the recently released iPhone 5 you are probably joining with Apple to cause a small amount of additional harm to the environment that could have been avoided. This is the result of Apple deciding to include yet another incompatible connector on the iPhone 5, contrary to their signed pledge to use the micro-USB standard that the other phone manufacturers also agreed to, and the ITU has adopted.

If you have any genuine concern for the environment, and the avoidance of yet more electronic waste, do not buy an iPhone 5, or any other iPhone for that matter.
