    By Louise Knott Ahern / The Detroit News

    Novi--That aging IBM gathering dust in your basement is more than a
    personal inconvenience.

    It's part of the technology age's newest global environmental threat.

    After a two-decade technology boom that has brought computers to half of
    American families and virtually all businesses, electronics makers from
    Japan to Oakland County are trying to figure out what to do with high-tech
    toys when they're traded in for newest models.

    whole story and more.
