All views are biased and have been since the dawn of history. I noted the bias you are referring to which includes a statement that the shape of computer chips is the only thing to change from year to year. This isn't the case given that the design of motherboards change due to "technological advances" which within the framework of what we refer to as the "IBM" Microsoft compatible PC is constrained - and will be until there is a shift in the paradigm (if that's the correct word).
I attended a lecture by CISCO close to a decade ago where CISCO (who are the leading force behind Internet technology) stated that the "PC" as used today is the MAJOR limiting factor in the speed of network communication and no advances in global network technology are possible until the world shifts from the "IBM/PC" compatible terminal(s) currently used in people's homes.
As you may be aware we have a new government and it's a government that has committed itself to delivering faster Broadband under Fibre to the Node (FTTN) technology but is currently having problems with Telstra who wish to obtain exclusive rights to build it and charge the Earth for it. Senator Conroy (ALP) is currently arguing that he is willing to negotiate a better deal for any provider who may be willing to offer Fibre to the Home (FTTH) technology currently used in Korea, which from I can see is one of the most advanced nations when it comes to network speeds and technology in general.
The issues relating to the disposal of old computers is something that the Australian Computer Society has raised as an ELSIC related issue and which is something the ACS has addressed and is addressing.
The ACS also deals with so called "green" issues especially with regards to excessive carbon emissions from the use of technology and also the disposal of unwanted technology. A search on "Australian Computer Society" on Google may bring up a list of things the ACS concerns itself with.
On the issue of Plasma and LCD screens these have come close to being banned in Australia due to their excessive levels of energy consumption.
There was some talk of them being banned completely by the year 2010 but news links to this appear to have vanished.
Indeed the presentation is biased. However if presenting a point of view it pays to place emphasis on the points being presented for consideration as this invites commentary and discussion.
I'm not a scientist. We have to take a certain amount of what we are told on trust. Kevin Rudd (our new PM) is flying to Bali next week to discuss climate and environment issues with "the world" (from which the United States is excluded - as was Australia under the Howard government). Environment and the so called Kyoto protocol was a factor in the defeat of the Howard government.
.. and I haven't a clue what Kyoto is about - other than the fact the neither John Howard nor George W Bush were willing to sign it. Australia has now "done so" (in symbolic form anyway) but it seems the non developed world is asking for more...
I wish Mr. Rudd all the best in Bali :-)

I have also watched several biased YouTube videos on everything from Communism, Marxism, Capitalism and Freedom of the Press and indeed Anarchy. I have dogmarked a few of them.
