Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Recycling

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive is UK Law. The legislation aims to ask producers to be responsible for the collection, treatment and disposal of waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE)

In the UK, Government estimates show that we throw away over two million tonnes of electrical waste each year, mostly into landfill. The WEEE Regulations aim to reduce the amount of electrical and electronic waste going to landfill sites and improve recovery and recycling rates of these products.

The WEEE Regulations apply to all businesses that import, manufacture or re-brand electrical and electronic equipment in the UK (known as 'producers').

News

  • It is never too early for rumors of the next iPhone iteration, right? So it goes in the land of smartphones—leaks, rumors, and speculation constantly abound. As it pertains to Apple's bread and butter device, there is talk of a 2020 model iPhone getting a display upgrade with a refresh rate than can be switched from 60Hz to 120Hz. Nothing is set in stone, and the chatter is not coming from Apple directly. However, moving to a 120Hz panel would give Apple an enticing bullet point to market at enthusiasts and gamers alike. As it stands, the majority of smartphones that have a 120Hz display (and there are not a ton of them) are gaming phones, like the just-announced ASUS ROG Phone II. Outside of the realm of gaming, there are handsets like the OnePlus 7 Pro, which has a 90Hz panel. Apple could potentially one-up it. That's assuming a 120Hz display comes to fruition in Cupertino. According to notorious leaker Ice Universe, "Apple is considering a switchable 60Hz/120Hz refresh rate screen on the iPhone in 2020, and is discussing with Samsung and LG." Source: Ice Universe (via Twitter) Ice Universe has not traditionally been plugged into the iPhone scene or Apple landscape in general, but has a long history of leaking information about Samsung devices and other Android handsets (in that order). Based on that, the information is at least plausible, especially with the caveat that Apple is "considering" a display with a higher refresh rate, as opposed to having outright decided upon it.
  • Many app makers are growing tired of paying the relatively high fees that the Apple App Store and Google Play are demanding. Google Play and the Apple App Store each take 30% of the revenue an app generates, leaving many developers looking for ways to maximize their revenue. Some have moved to take payments directly, and others, like Fortnite, have opted to completely bypass Google Play and offer their apps directly to customers. Dating app Tinder is taking a different route.
  • After a week of teasing and a few leaks, ASUS is getting officially official with its ROG Phone II gaming phone. As ASUS confirmed last week, the ROG Phone II is powered by Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 855 Plus, which a binned version of the existing Snapdragon 855 with higher CPU and GPU clocks.
