Guiding the SOHO Practitioner in a Digital World


So, Best Buy is testing a recycling program. Nice, but it’s at only 117 US stores. Hardly seems worth knowing about it unless you’re in the local area.

How about every store helping customers locate local agencies that would be willing to take used equipment? Shelters, churches, non-profit agencies would have a place to advertise what they need. Customers would be glad to find a place to get rid of their old stuff. And there may even be a tax deduction in it.

Although it does remind me of Dave Barry’s book, Dave Barry In Cyberspace, where he talks about buying a computer and then throwing it in the bin outside the store as you leave – because it’s already obsolete.
