Earth Day (this Sunday) may be another fabrication by some marketing department, but Dell is taking it to a new low.
The company is handing out free trees in Second Life. These aren't just your every day virtual trees, players can configure the speed at which they grow and the trees offer several textures.
All this, the company claims is an "expansion of Dell's Plant a Tree for Me program", in which computer buyers can choose to pay an additional $2 to plant a tree and offset some carbon emissions. It also shows Dell's intension to use Second Life "to explore new ways we can extend our direct relationship with customers, and to learn new ways to interact with virtual communities".
