Green vs. blue vs. yellow vs. pink vs. white: Which iPhone 5c color should you get?

More than any iPhone in history, the iPhone 5c is all about color and personality. It comes in hard coated polycarbonate - think plastic, but way classier! - in fun, vibrant shades of green, blue, yellow, pink and white. Color is so personal, so distinctive, but more colors mean more to choose from, and can also mean a more difficult choice!

US Chamber of Commerce -- Just Not Green Enough

Apple is on a big, green tear lately, and like another jade-skinned giant, you better not make them angry -- because you won't like them when they're angry.

Ginormous would be one word for them. Wasteful, another.

Could things have changed however? While we received three of the huge boxes only a couple of weeks ago, this week we received two much smaller padded envelopes instead. Did Apple and/or their shipping company respond to the concerns, or just realize how insane the previous packaging was?

Anybody else getting the newer, slimmed-down packaging? Anyone still getting the huge boxes?

Steve Speaks: It's Not Easy Being Greener

Because of Apple's high media profile, Greenpeace likes to have a little fun with them. Nothing gets headlines like bashing Apple in the tech industry, especially if you're hippie enough to make Steve Jobs seem more like Stephen Colbert. With Al Gore on their board, however, it's probably safe to say Apple has to at least appear to be one of the more -- if not most -- environmentally friendly major tech company in the US. Case in point, and unprecedented second open letter from Steve Jobs:
