Steve Jobs making good on his company's promise to be greener

Apple Inc. last made an announcement about transitioning its entire line of LCD displays over to new LED-backlight LCD panels. In a commitment to making Apple a more earth-friendly company, Steve Jobs confirmed that by the end of 2007, Apple will rid itself of all mercury-based fluorescent LCD panels.

This week Apple seems to be making progress on its transition to LED-backlit LCD panels. Reports confirmed that AU Optronics and Chi Mei Optoelectronics all have LED-backlight LCD panels that are under review by Apple. Au Optronics and Chi Mei Optoelectronics are further down the line with Apple, having 13.3-inch and 15.4-inch panels already certified by Apple.

Apple's 15.4-inch MacBook Pro line of laptops are already using the new panels, and the new 13.3-inch certifications indicate that Apple will be transitioning its MacBook line soon.  Coretronic and Kenmos Technology, suppliers of LED-backlights, have been sourced by Apple, with Kenmos being preferred for its integration with Stanley Electric's LED V-cut light-guide panel technology. Because of this, Chi Mei Optoelectronics has decided to use back panels from Kenmos.

Pretty much. The once were an organization with a green goal. They've become an organization with self aggrandizement as their goal.
