As fast as our thumbs can swipe "next" on a tablet screen, developers are creating bigger and better upgrades for every piece of technology. Now items once considered cutting-edge disappear into obsolescence more rapidly than ever before. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, only about 25 percent of all electronic waste (e-waste) is collected for recycling. The remaining bulk usually ends up in landfills in China or India. Not only is the phenomenon wasteful, the toxic materials housed in many of the gadgets are dangerous to the environment.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

Don Bryden, Managing director at KCJ Training and Employment Solutions in Swindon, England, thinks that nonsmokers and smokers should be treated equally, so he's giving those who refrain from smoking four extra days to compensate.

Funny enough, Bryden is a smoker himself.
