San Francisco Officials Plan to Block Apple Procurement

Uh oh, Apple products no longer qualify to be purchased with city funds? I can actually see the smug cloud over San Francisco shrinking as I type this. eek!

Officials with the San Francisco Department of Environment told CIO Journal on Monday they would send out letters over the next two weeks, informing all 50 of the city’s agencies that Apple laptops and desktops "will no longer qualify" for purchase with city funds. The move comes after CIO Journal reported that Apple had removed its laptops and notebooks from a voluntary registry of green electronics, called EPEAT.
