It's Earth Day — so don't just toss your old computer!  —  It's Earth Day today, and the consumer electronics industry isn't above a little shameless self-promotion to show off their green cred.  And, we have to admit, recycling your old gear is a lot better than just tossing it into the basement — or worse, a landfill.
