yeah, hopefully.

its kinda sad that before laptops can get to a point where they're just as upgradeable as pc's, we have to get to the point where theres too many discarded ones.

I thought when UPNP came round, this shit wouldnt be a problem anymore.. i was pretty wrong.

I'd second that. Though aspects of Canada's laws are 'slightly' outdated. For example the tariff on cd's - i seldom use cd's for much other than burning a copy of a linux distro.

Canada's on the right track though.

Now, if they put the tariff on ipods/mp3 players/media enabled phones it might work better with the times. People wont appreciate the cost though.

The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
