Via Takes a Blow, the US Takes a Beating

Looks like Via's carbon free computing campaign took a shot recently when journalists pointed out that Via only offsets the power used by their CPUs, not the carbon actually used to manufacture the product. Yes, it's a bit disingenuous. However, the real losers seems to be the US journalists, who (according to the article) didn't even know what carbon free computing meant:

...the case is different in the US; a spokesman told me that during an American press conference the concern was over consumers thinking 'carbon free' means there is no carbon at all in the PC.

C'mon, everyone knows 'puters are made of a titanium carbonic alloy from the planet Hoth. My four year old said it best - whatever.
