Another iPhone Lawsuit In The Wings

The latest round of lawsuits against Apple over the iPhone comes from the Center for Environmental Health.  That organization believes the iPhone violates the California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986.  The violation concerns levels of phthalates in the iPhone.  The suit hasn't been filed yet, but likely will be depending on Apple's response.  This comes on top of Greenpeace complaining about other toxins in the iPhone.  Apple responded that it meets Restrictions of Hazardous Substances standards which did not impress Greenpeace at all.  They're all miffed because out of all phone manufacturers, Apple does not voluntarily disclose the chemical make-up of its phone.  If Apple had disclosed the chemical content, would it have really changed anything?  They'd probably still sell a million or more.

See stories in Wired and TechNewsWorld for more details.
