Cutting back on packaging. Shipping cost going down is just a bonus.

This story on Walmart and HP cutting back on product packaging is just interesting all around. Not only is the eco-savvy consumer going to like not having to dump a ridiculous amount of styrofoam, bubble wrap, cardboard, etc., but it's actually helping cut back on the amount of trucks used to ship the product. The article says:
"In larger terms, that means Walmart can remove the equivalent of one out of every four trucks it takes to ship the PCs."
This is pretty cool.
