Gazelle wants to change the world – one cell phone, one laptop, one iPod at a time.

It is our purpose – and our promise – to provide a practical, rewarding way for people to finally rid themselves of all those old cell phones, digital cameras, and gaming systems that they no longer use, but can’t seem to find a way to let go of.

Too often when people think of recycling, they rush straight to smashing things into bits for parts. We believe that reuse should always come first. If your GPS unit still works, why not keep it in circulation AND get paid for it? If reusing isn’t in the cards, then let us recycle that vintage camcorder. We think of it as ReCommerce.

Yeah, we’re green.
Green for you with dollars in your pocket. Green for the environment with fewer electronics being trashed.

It’s good to Gazelle. That’s our promise.

Expected in the next few weeks, the news of T-Mobile U.S.’s bid for Sprint comes merely days after Deutsche Telekom announced that its U.K. T-Mobile business will merge with France Telecom’s Orange carrier.

In the U.K., the Orange and T-Mobile merger (third and fourth spots on the market), will create the country’s largest wireless carrier, with a combined 37 percent share of [read]

As long as seven years ago, the federal National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration recommended that drivers not use cellphones, even with hands-free equipment, while on the road except in emergencies. But that recommendation was never made public until today.

The proposals from the agency in 2002 and 2003 were only made public Tuesday by The Center for Auto Safety and Public Citizen, two public interest groups that filed a lawsuit to obtain the documents under the Freedom of Information Act.


Bury me with my cell phone

Posted: December 17, 2008 in I Don't Know

Cell phones are out of control. I’m not one to point fingers – I LOVE my Blackberry. It rarely leaves my side. And now I’m an iPhone widower. But, goodness, is this how it’s going to end? Maybe I’ll live long enough to get the implant so they won’t have to bury with my phone, when I couldn’t even reach the send button.
