Newest iPod nano is ‘toxic free’
The newly unveiled update of the iPod nano is slender and sexy, equipped with “shake-to-shuffle” capability, and eco-friendly to boot. (Well, you don’t actually have to boot it … oh, whatever.) Apple CEO Steve Jobs, who is alive and kicking despite reports to the contrary, says the music player is Apple’s “cleanest” and most “toxic free” offering. The device contains no arsenic, brominated flame retardants, mercury, or PVC, says Jobs, and is “highly recyclable.” Apple has agreed to keep flame retardants and PVC out of all of its products after Jan. 1, 2009, and that’s music to our ears.
