Whats the industry ratio of circuit boards manufactured per month versus circut boards recycled per month? The eWaste stream is worth thinking about and should be included in the price of electronics. Maybe tablets shouldnt be $38 because so many of them will get thrown away, with their toxic components in a landfill that eventually leaks into the groundwater.

The world's largest daily-deal company is testing a card reader manufactured by Infinite Peripherals allowing merchants to accept credit cards by plugging the device into a smartphone.

It may be able to undercut them with fees coming from other services it offers merchants."
