Smart phone – spoof advert

smartphone_truecost

A spoof advert for another “smart” phone, referring to the environmental and social costs of these “high-tech” gadgets.  Friends of the Earth have teamed up with several other groups to creat the Make IT Fair campaign.  The national UK student campaigners People and Planet are also campaigning for the rights of workers in the electronics industry, and are part of the new international campaign Electronics Watch.  I have not seen it yet, but I have heard good things about a powerful documentary called Blood in the Mobile that might interest you.  Also, the GAIA Foundation have produced two reports on the wider impacts of IT.
