A Peek Into the Soviet Computer Revolution

A Peek Into the Soviet Computer Revolution One of the largest and coolest collections of Soviet computers in the world resides in an apartment complex in Mariupol, Ukraine. Dmitriy Cherepanov started Club 8-bit with a small collection of computers built when the Soviet bloc was crafting its own personal computers. It’s like looking into an alternative universe. The machines popular to kids growing up in the Soviet bloc look just different enough from what we’re familiar within the western world, but still carries that same sense of nostalgia you or I might get for a Commodore 64 or Macintosh II.

Dell is launching new efforts to shrink its carbon footprint and cut down on e-waste. The sustainability targets were unveiled at a summit in Austin, Texas, alongside other initiatives on diversity, inclusion, and privacy.

When it comes to stemming the greenhouse gases that lead to climate change, Dell will source 100 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2040. (For comparison, Apple announced in 2018 that it uses 100 percent renewable energy.) Dell isn’t just switching to renewable sources; it’s also trying to use less energy. It plans to make its products more energy efficient and cut the emissions generated directly from its operations and its electricity usage in half by 2030. The company will work with other manufacturers to shave off emissions along its supply chain.

Dell built a color calibrator into its new monitor

  Dell built a color calibrator into its new monitor Dell's newest monitor has been designed with creators in mind. The UP2720Q is the world's first 27-inch 4K monitor with a built-in colorimeter -- a light-sensitive device that measures the intensity and concentration of color. It offers 100 percent Adobe RBG, 98 percent DCI-P3 and 80 percent BT2020, allowing designers to maximize a larger color gamut and more accurately work with images on devices such as smartphones, computers and TVs, where the DCI-P3 standard is increasingly being used.

Dell Pledges Energy-Efficient Computers . Katie Fehrenbacher May 14, 2008 - 11:30 AM CDT. Hardware companies like Dell , Samsung, Nokia, HP, and even Apple are starting to make greener computers and gadgets because customers are starting to show a willingness to pay a premium for

Dell will source 100 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2040

Dell is also making new commitments when it comes to recycling. By 2030, the company plans to reuse or recycle an equivalent product for every device that a customer buys. It is also pledging that, by then, at least half of all the materials used in its products will be “recycled or renewable,” and 100 percent of its packaging will be recycled or renewable.

“We believe that this is a business critical initiative,” Christine Fraser, Dell’s chief responsibility officer, tells The Verge. “The imperative is really what our customers and our team members expect of us.”

Dell says it will power all of its facilities with renewable energy by 2040

  Dell says it will power all of its facilities with renewable energy by 2040 Dell has announced new sustainability initiatives as part of the "Progress Made Real" plan the company shared on Tuesday. The centerpiece of the company's new climate change plan is to source 75 percent of the power for all of its facilities from renewables, and 100 percent by 2040. Dell also plans to make its supply chain and devices more energy efficient along the way. For comparison, Apple announced that as of last year all of its facilities were powered by renewables -- though it was able to achieve that milestone by taking advantage of carbon offsets and credits.

The company plans to expand its current recycling program. It already recycles electronics, no matter the brand, dropped off at participating Goodwill locations, and it also has a mail-back program with FedEx. As a result, it’s recovered 2 billion pounds of used electronics since 2008. But there’s still a lot of room for improvement. Dell estimates that it collects less than 10 percent of the products it sells. Less than 5 percent of its product materials are currently made from recycled or renewable content.

People throw away 50 million tons of e-waste globally each year

“I would give the industry a very poor grade in general in making sure that the electronics they put on the market are recycled,” says Scott Cassel, founder of the advocacy group Product Stewardship Institute. People throw away 50 million tons of e-waste globally — about 4,500 Eiffel Towers — each year, according to the World Economic Forum. The WEF says that number could balloon to as much as 120 million tons by 2050. What’s worse, toxic heavy metals can leach out of electronics to contaminate soil and water.

At the root of the Eiffel Towers of waste, polluted soil and water, and even manufacturing’s intense carbon footprint is a single problem that all electronics makers — not just Dell — need to improve on, according to Vesela Veleva, director of the MBA Program at the University of Massachusetts Boston. If consumers kept their electronics longer instead of needing to replace them every few years, we wouldn’t be burning as many fossil fuels or throwing so much stuff away. Making durable products that people can use longer would be an even bigger step, and it’s one that companies like Dell haven’t quite made yet. “These are great goals but unfortunately they don’t get to the core of the problem, which is extending the useful life of the product,” Veleva says. “Recycling is just the tip of the iceberg — it’s not going to be enough.”

Get $750 off Dell's loaded Alienware m15 gaming laptop .
It took Dell long enough to make a thin and light gaming laptop, but the Alienware m15 was worth the wait. While it's a bit chunkier than rival models at 18mm and 4.8 pounds, the latest m15 model has performance to burn, along with a great display, keyboard and trackpad. For Cyber Monday, Dell has marked down a fully specced out Alienware m15, with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 GPU, top-tier Intel Core i7-9750H CPU, 15.6-inch 1,920 x 1,080 240Hz display, 512GB PCIe m.2 SSD and no less than 32GB of RAM.That's nearly a fully-loaded model with a ray-tracing GPU and a display that's a good fit for it.
